Perkasie has an extensive park system and an active Parks and Recreation Board that offers many activities throughout the Borough.
Winter Trail Reminder:
For Borough Park Trail Snow Information, please refer to Resolution #2008-34:
“Snow plowing of streets and roadways, park service drives, municipal parking lots, sidewalks on Borough-owned properties, and any emergency needs are to take priority over snow removal. However, removal of snow from the designated areas is to be a priority of plowing of snow from municipal bike paths.”
The Borough trails will be cleared when possible, but snow and ice covered areas may remain for an extended period of time after a storm. Surfaces may be slippery. Residents may still access the parks for winter recreation activities; however, they do so at their own risk.
