About Us

A Park District is responsible for the preservation of open space in a community, development of parks and providing recreational programs for all ages.

Our mission is to enrich the quality of life through recreation, education and preservation.  We offer a variety of recreational opportunities for residents and non-residents of all ages.  The BTPD is made up of 4 facilities, Recreation Station, Exploration Station… a children’s museum, Willowhaven Park & Nature Center and Perry Farm Administrative Building. We also have 4 parks, Perry Farm Park, Diamond Point Park, Willowhaven Park & Nature Center and Turnberry Park.
