Many job opportunities are available!  We are looking for a Pool Manager, Lifeguards, Gate Attendant/Concession employees and Bulldog Blast Summer Rec. Counselors!  Just click on our Employment tab at the top of the page to get started!


We are very grateful to Slatington Borough and Washington Township for the significant contributions they make to NLRA each year, but your support is appreciated as well!  Last year, over 5,000 children, adults and their families participated in NLRA's programs and events.  You can help this number 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!
