Area Recreation Programs

Elverson residents participate in a wide range of recreational programs; including special community events, organized sports, arts and crafts, nature activities, and social activities. As is typical in predominantly rural areas, local program agencies are geared to serve a broader region of which Elverson is a part. Some of these are:

Twin Valley Youth Soccer Club, Elverson Baseball Association,  Twin Valley Football League, Chester County Swine 4-H Club, Chester County Sheep 4-H Club, T.O.P.S. (adult exercise program), local Boy and Girl Scouts troops, Elverson and Honey Brook Lions Clubs, Morgantown Masonic Lodge and Women’s Club, and local American Legion post (Joanna, Berks Co.). The Twin Valley Middle School and  High School offers interscholastic athletics to boys and girls enrolled in the district, with a wide range of sport programs. The Chester County Volleyball League offers adult play throughout the County.  The Elverson Fitness Club offers exercise instruction, aquatic programs (including recreational swimming), adult racquetball, volleyball, and basketball leagues, parent/child programs, and child care and summer camp programs.

Programs for senior citizens are offered at senior centers in Morgantown, Coatesville and Downingtown. These are private, non-profit agencies receiving funding support from the Pennsylvania Department of Aging and the United Way. Within Chester County, free transportation is available on demand by Chester County Paratransit Service.

Regional Parks

West Nantmeal Recreation Area

Elverson residents are served by several regional parks. These include: French Creek (Berks/Chester Cos.), Marsh Creek (Chester Co.), Blue Marsh Lake (Berks Co.), Valley Forge National Historical Park (Chester/Montgomery Cos.) and Hopewell Village National Historic Site (Berks/Chester Cos.). Regional park facilities offer substantial opportunity for picnicking, hiking swimming, and horseback riding.

Nearby Regional Parks

Chester County’s Hibernia Park, Warwick Park, Springton Manor Farm interpretive park, Struble Trail, and Struble Lake access area are located within a 15-20-minute drive of Elverson residents. All five offer picnicking, hiking, and horseback riding, and host numerous special events, although formal programs and facilities are quite limited at Struble Lake and at the Struble Trail.  Struble Lake is a 160-acre impoundment owned by the Pennsylvania Fish Commission. The Struble Trail, which begins in Downingtown, currently extends about three miles along the East Branch Brandywine. Ultimately it is expected to extend closer to Elverson, through the southern part of West Nantmeal and into Honey Brook, linking up with Springton Manor Farm and Struble Lake. The Springton Manor Farm exhibits antique farm implements and live farm animals and hosts numerous special events aimed to interpret historical farm practices and farm life in Chester County. Picnic facilities are particularly numerous at Hibernia Park, as are unstructured play fields and playgrounds. Hibernia also offers formal campsites and informal tent camping opportunities. An 89-acre water supply lake within the bounds of Hibernia Park also offers water recreation opportunities.
