Parks & Recreation
In the early 1950s, as Monroeville began to grow as a community, the need for recreation and recreational facilities also began to grow. Today the municipality boasts more than 650 acres of parkland and a complete offering of recreational programs.
Just a reminder that the Parks in Monroeville are open and residents are encouraged to use them to promote physical activity while maintaining social distancing.
