Organized recreation in Derry Township began with the development of Milton Hershey’s model town. He believed recreation to be as vital to our lives as housing and utilities. During the construction of the town, Mr. Hershey established a plan for a public park and the Cocoa Avenue Plaza. The Cocoa Avenue Plaza was donated to the Township in 1978. The Township continues to place recreation as a high priority and strives to meet the recreational needs of an active community.

Cocoa Castle: The Next Generation


The new Cocoa Castle Playground is almost complete, but we are still $20,000 short of our fundraising goal!

We have several exciting opportunities to support this project, including personalized fence pickets that are available for $50, commemorative bricks for $150, and there are also varying levels of sponsorship ranging from $500 to $5,000.

Please review the sponsorship information below and contact us via email @ CocoaCastleHershey@gmail.com if you have any questions or need additional information. Stay tuned for information regarding our Grand Opening in early Spring of 2017.
