Park Public Survey Available

The City of Allentown Department of Parks and Recreation is seeking public input as it develops a Master Plan for Percy Ruhe Park.  

Located in the southern part of the city along Oxford Drive and bordered by Interstate 78, the 27.5-acre community recreation complex is a popular location for both youth and adult sports leagues and often holds baseball/softball tournaments through the spring and summer.

In the survey accessible here, respondents will have the opportunity to share how they currently use and experience this area. The responses will help create a vision for the future of this highly valued park. The survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.

The survey will be available until approximately November 1, 2021. Survey responses are not identified by name. Your response will be anonymous. All responses will be compiled and be part of the Percy Ruhe Park Master Plan report.
