Village Centre - The Village Centre located at 1 Arkie Albanese Ave., features an indoor gymnasium and an auditorium that can be rented by non-profit organizations or used to host village sponsored events. The well-known Swan Pond, a softball and soccer field, the amphitheater, and a small playground can all be found on the land at the Village Centre. After spending time at the Centre, walk down to the Centre Pond where children and seniors can fish on certain days of the week with a permit you can obtain from the clerk’s office. Centre Pond has a beautiful path around it that will lead you to the Village Swan Pond. Come and meet Faye and Manny, our resident swans. If you want to feed the ducks there are feeders available to the public.
Mill Run Park - Located at the very end of Mill Street, Mill Run Park offers a large variety of outdoor recreational opportunities. Book a family get-together at the Whorrall Pavilions, bring your fishing pole, enjoy an extensive playground apparatus, play volleyball, horseshoes, Bocce Ball, or softball - or just enjoy the spectacular scenery that Mill Run Park has to offer.
Perry Springs Park - Located in the middle of the village, Perry Springs Park offers hiking trails and a beautiful pond where you can sit and relax. Additionally, Perry Springs is home to the Village Fish Hatchery which offers a unique view of different varieties of trout in different stages of growth. Come feed our fish on a Saturday morning and get a firsthand look at the inner-workings of the hatchery.
Recreational Building - Located at 6 Stickley Drive, this building is a perfect place to hold a small civic meeting or a large family party. With two rooms of different sizes, the Rec.
