Northern Lehigh Recreation has a full schedule of programs and events planned for the Northern Lehigh community this coming Fall and Holiday season!

We are SO grateful to Slatington Borough and Washington Township for the significant contributions they make to NLRA each year, but your support is needed as well!  This year so far, over 5,500 children, adults and their families participated in NLRA's programs and events, including joining the Northern Lehigh Swimming Pool.  You can help us to continue to grow as a community partner and donor.  Contact us with questions about what you can do to help promote a strong sense of community in the Northern Lehigh area!

NLRA's many programs and events would not be possible without the extremely generous support of our partners- Slatington Borough, Washington Township, Northern Lehigh School District, as well as the Rotary Club of Slatington, the Slatington Lions Club, Slatington Lodge #440, the Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber of Commerce, the Venture Group, the Henry L. Mickley & Mabel S. Fravel Charitable Trust, the Trexler Trust, the Main Street Foundation, IronPigs Charities and Lehigh County.

Thank you everyone!
