Somerset County Therapeutic Recreation Department

The Manville Recreation Department has a cooperative agreement with the Somerset County Park Commissions Therapeutic Recreation Department to provide programs and services to our borough residents. We are dedicated to provide year round recreation and leisure opportunities for people with developmental disabilities who need specialized / adapted recreation programs or inclusion support services. The goal is to promote an active leisure lifestyle that improves social, physical, cognitive and emotional functioning and health while enhancing each participant's abilities. By providing a variety of social, cultural, artistic, sports, fitness, community outings, and special events, participants can recreate in the day, evening, or weekend.

If you have individualized needs, please call the Manville Recreation Department at 908-725-9478 ext. 121, and we will gladly arrange reasonable accommodations for participation in our programming. Three weeks notice is required to ensure that appropriate accommodations can be provided.
