The mission of the Ross Township Parks & Recreation Department is to provide a variety of comprehensive leisure activities and facilities that will develop and satisfy your recreational needs. This mission includes forming positive, strong and lasting relationships with those organizations that share this idea. Services and facilities are available to all citizens, regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.

This department is committed to giving all citizens equal access to recreational opportunities. In keeping with that policy, reasonable accommodations and support will be provided to people with disabilities so that they make take advantage of these opportunities.

The department is currently looking for volunteers to assist us in our activities. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us at 412-931-7041.

Ross Township's Public Works Department maintains our parks through sustainable maintenance practices, including redistribution of grass clippings and keeping the grass taller which reduces water needs and also reduces weeds. The Township is undertaking a Master Site Plan for Sangree Park to include sustainable water and landscape features. See the link below for a more detailed look at the New Site Plan.

One of the key themes of the Parks and Recreation Comp Plan was maintaining greenspace and passive facilities such as walking trails. The Board is currently investigating opening trails at its Cemetery Lane Property. The following schematic provides an outline of the proposed trail system.
