Thomas B. George, Jr. Park

 

Thomas B. George, Jr. Park as a regional facility serving the entire community. George Park is a combination of park facilities and newly developed parkland, producing the Township's largest park. 

 

George Park is located in the southeast quarter of Lower Paxton Township. It is bounded by Nyes Road to the east; the Lamplight Park and residential development to the south; the Meadowbrook residential development and a business campus to the west; and Ranger Fields, the Paxtonia Elementary School, and the old Lower Paxton Township High School (now owned by New Love In Christ Church) to the north. 

 

George Park is composed of 62 acres available for outdoor recreation. 

  • The Township has developed 2 soccer fields, parking for 300 vehicles, a picnic pavilion, an in-line hockey rink, a playground, and a 13-acre nature area for preservation of wetlands and environmental education.
  • 9 acres developed with 5 soccer fields, locally referred to as “Ranger Fields." 
  • 10 acres known as the Paxtonia Ball Fields that are leased to the Township by the CDSD and developed with 6 baseball and softball fields.

Possibility Place, a unique playground suitable for use by all children, irrespective of age or ability.  The development of Possibility Place was undertaken as a community-wide effort by Inspired Recreation, a dedicated group of caring and determined volunteers.
