Picnicana

Picnicana Park began as a privately owned picnic area in 1951.  Located on the west side of Old French Road, Township residents, Catherine and Andrew F. Klaus, were the original owners.  The Klaus family chose the name Picnicana, taken from a German word meaning fest or feast.

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania made Project 70 funds available to municipalities for purchase and development of parks and recreational facilities.  With a grant from this fund, Summit Township purchased Picnicana in the early 1970s.  Over 24 wooded acres offer 2 covered picnic pavilions, modern handicapped accessible restrooms, a softball field, 2 horseshoe courts, a sand volleyball court, 2 basketball courts and playground equipment. 

Open from May 1st to October 15th, fully equipped kitchens and pavilions are available for rental.  Reservations for the following summer are taken beginning September 15th for Summit Township Residents and on October 1st for non-residents, phone 868-9686, at 8:00 a.m. It should be noted that "walk-ins" at 8:00 a.m. are given priority over phone calls.  Click here to view Picnicana rules and regulations.

The Summit Township Recreational Board offers a six-week summer day camp program for children at this park.

Kitchen #3 also has available a multi-purpose room (25' x 22') equipped with tables and chairs. The parking area has been increased and paved with more lighting. A new flagpole has been installed and increased lighting throughout the picnic area.

Community Park

Summit Community Park, located to the west of the municipal complex on Old French Road, was completed in 1984.  Three soccer fields, three baseball fields and a combination concession, storage and restroom facility plus playground equipment for the 10-and-under age group make this a busy facility all summer and into the fall.

LeBoeuf Little League

The LeBoeuf Little League  was formed in 2002 and is the result of many dedicated volunteers from the Waterford, Summit Township, and Mill Village communities.

The objectives of the LeBoeuf Little League shall be to implant firmly in the boys and girls of the Fort LeBoeuf District, the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage, and respect for authority. With these values, our children may develop into stronger and happier boys and girls and will grow into good, decent, healthy citizens.  All officers, commissioners, and coaches shall bear in mind that the attainment of exceptional athletic skill or the winning of games is secondary, and the molding of future citizens is of prime importance.

With 18 fields and over 400 boys and girls playing baseball and softball, the LeBoeuf Little League is one of the largest Little League programs in Northwestern Pennsylvania. In 2004, the 9/10- year old girls softball team won our first District and Sectional Championships and participated in the 2004 9/10-year old State Softball Tournament in Scranton, PA.
