Recreation Mission Statement

The mission of the Franklin Park Recreation Board is to organize recreational and social activities for the benefit of Borough residents and to advise Franklin Park Borough Council on the development and maintenance of safe, usable and aesthetically pleasing recreational facilities.

Talents and Ideas

Do you have a special interest or talent that you would be willing to share? It may be your profession or something you just enjoy doing. Perhaps you are a motivational speaker, a lawyer, a cook, a mechanic, a sports professional, a homemaker with some special recipes or you know how to crochet, quilt, sew, tie fly's, make crafts, have artistic talents, or perhaps you can lead exercise or have a special hobby. Your talents are limitless. We would love to hear from you and discuss how we may share your talents through our programs. The Borough programs can grow with your help and provide the types of recreation you want. Do not be afraid to offer ideas and talents. Each will be evaluated for its potential as a program.
