The Lancaster Inter-Municipal Committee (LIMC), a group of municipalities in central Lancaster County, completed the Conestoga Greenway Plan in 1999. The purpose of the plan is to provide for recreation, education, and environmental preservation along the Conestoga. The Conestoga Greenway Trail runs along the Conestoga River and is a prototype for a greenway along the rest of the waterway.

A small, well-maintained neighborhood park, with new playground equipment. It is a perfect spot for a quiet, family picnic. On June 1, 2016, the township board of supervisors passed a resolution to rename the park in honor of retired public works employee Rob Eckenrode.
