    To preserve green space, Jackson Township has created an extensive park system consisting of eight parks with over 240 acres of land where residents can play, enjoy nature and the outdoors.  There are recreation and sports facilities to satisfy most everyone, including baseball, softball, soccer, football, and lacrosse fields, tennis, pickleball and volleyball courts and children's playgrounds, plus hiking, running, walking and picnic facilities.  Thousands of residents participate in organized youth sports programs each year.  The park facilities are constantly being expanded, and many community events are held throughout the parks all year long.
