Parks

Whitehall has six parks, each with numerous athletic fields, playgrounds and open spaces for our residents to enjoy. All parks are available for Residents, their organizations and their government.

In addition to the parks, the municipal complex features two basketball courts, four tennis courts, and a community swimming pool and adjacent plaza.

Overlook Park is CLOSED for the 2024 Season

The Whitehall Borough Parks Plan

The Whitehall Parks Master Plan is a culmination of efforts over three years. The Parks Planning Committee has been seeking to both update the Comprehensive Park Plan and establish a new master plan for each neighborhood park. Along with creating a direction for future funding, the park master planning process will provide essential feedback from the community.
