The Hanover Township Park District, located at 800 Fillmore St. (old Hanover High School), was formed and funded by a popular referendum in April 2003 after many years of organization and volunteer work. Among their first actions was to purchase the former Hanover School vacated that summer by the River Ridge School District.
