Sign up now for the 2024 Duncannon Area Community Garden!

The Duncannon Area Community Garden began in 2011 with an annual cooperative agreement between Karns and the Penn Township Park and Recreation Board.  The Community Garden area is located in the field "catty-corner" to Rite Aid & Karns Gas Station.  Karns, local farmers, businesses, and individuals have graciously helped each year to prepare the ground and garden plot areas.  Garden plots are free, but limited in number, and must be cleared out by the end of October. Gardeners provide their own tools, seeds, and/or plants.  Organic methods and techniques of gardening are preferred.  If you are interested in working a garden plot in 2024, or for more information, please contact the Garden Coordinator, John Sproch at (717) 350-4431, or the Penn Township office (717) 834-5281.
You can print the form or pick one up at the Township office. Once you've filled out the agreement, you can hand it in at the Township office.

Five miles of the world-famous Appalachian Trail passes through Penn Township along the northern ridge of Cove Mountain just north of State Game Land #170.  Notable points of interest are Hawk Rock Overlook and the Cove Mountain Shelter.

The Penn Township section of the Appalachian Trail starts south of Duncannon Borough where South Market and East Main streets meet by the Route 11/15 overpass.  It continues south along Main Street, over the Sherman’s Creek bridge, along Inn Road and then turns right (west) heading up the end of Cove Mountain.  Popular parking locations are near the end of Inn Road and near the end of Watershed Drive by the Recycling Center.
