Recreation


Norristown Rec provides programming year round for all community members, youth, families, and seniors. We have competitive leagues, introductory and advanced sports skills classes as well as events. We also provide the community with Summer Camp and Summer Basketball leagues for both youth and adults. We have been serving the Greater Norristown Community with Recreation for over 40 years and look forward to providing 40 more with new vision and ideas!

 

The Recreation Department provides programs for children and adults throughout the year. Our Thomas Barone Memorial Complex offers 3 fields, one with lights, for our youth baseball and softball programs. Latshaw Field is a host to Chestnut Hill University, Norristown Diamonds, Connie Mack Baseball(13-16) Senior League Baseball (30 & over) and CYO during the baseball season. We also have an adult softball field at Sully Gelet field and Patti Simons Field. Elmwood Park offers bocce ball, volleyball, picnics, Sunday Concerts and playground areas. 

NOTE: All programs offered are in need of coaches, sponsors and umpires. Contact us at 610-270-0467 to see how you can help.
