Sports & Recreation

If you’re in town and looking for a place to stretch your legs, check out our award-winning parks and trails. Did you know that the Montour Trail and Panhandle Trail connect in McDonald near the McDonald Trail Station? Make a day of it and grab lunch in town after working up a sweat on the trail.

Our national pastime takes center stage in Washington County. PONY Baseball and Softball was founded here in 1951, and since the second season in 1952 the organization has hosted the best 13-year-old and 14-year-old baseball players in the world at the PONY League World Series at Washington Park. Adding to this legacy since 2002, the Frontier League’s Washington Wild Things provide a top-notch experience for fans of all ages. 

Are you planning a golf trip, or in town on business and looking for a place to take your clients? Did you know that two different courses in Washington County have hosted PGA TOUR sanctioned events? 

Maybe you just need to get a quick workout in between meetings? We have a number of fantastic recreation centers to suit your every need. 

For the outdoor enthusiast Washington County boasts nearly 20,000 acres of public land open to hunting, fishing, hiking, and bird watching.
