Many residents of Sellersville, a borough in Bucks County Pennsylvania enjoy spending time outdoors especially during the summer months when the climate becomes very hot and humid. Fortunately there are several parks in the town and surrounding areas that provide an ideal retreat for the local community during the hottest season and throughout the year also. These parks are run by the local recreation administration and they often have many special events scheduled during the calendar year including open air concerts, fishing tournaments and exhibitions. The Park and Recreation Committee meets on the 2nd Thursday of every month – with the exception of the month of December when there is no – starting at 7.00 pm in the West Rockhill Township building and all meetings are open to the public. Park & Recreation is always looking for volunteers to help out in a variety of different areas so if you have recently moved to the area and are looking to get involved with the local community then this is a great place to start that will also enable you to meet like-minded people and make new friends in the area.
