Parks and Recreation in Derry Township

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.
