Did you know that many of the events sponsored by the West Goshen Park and Recreation Board are free to the public? The West Goshen Park and Recreation Board asks anyone attending a free public event to bring a donation of a dry good item for the West Chester Food Cupboard and the Coatesville Veterans Hospital.

Evens just don't happen...they require the efforts of many. You can help The Friends of West Goshen Parks by becoming a member.
