Kunkle Park consists of 40 plus acres of flat land and rolling hills, located beside the Municipal Building.  Kunkle Park was donated by Elbert N. Kunkle to Washington Township to be used as a park and recreation area. 

Please be aware that during the winter, the restrooms are closed and will re-open in April.  The Fort Hand Re-enactment was held in the park in 2014, which commemorated the April 1779 attack on Fort Hand. This event was sponsored by the Northwest Department of the Brigade of the American Revolution, which is a non-profit Living history association dedicated to recreating the life and times of the common soldier of the American War for Independence, 1775-1783. For additional information or to volunteer for the event, send your email to friendsofforthand@hotmail.com.
