Welcome to the official website for the Borough of East Berlin, Pennsylvania!

Our charming town, its downtown designated a National Historic District, is surrounded by Conewago and Beaver Creeks and nestled within the rolling hills of northeast Adams County. We are located at the crossroads of State Routes 194 and 234, with easy access to Gettysburg, Hanover, York and Harrisburg.

We are home to many businesses, services, industries and organizations. There are fun community events held year round and many opportunities to volunteer and get involved.

If you have questions that are not answered here, please call (717) 259-9224, or stop by Borough Hall at 128 Water Street. The office is open Mon-Thu 7:30AM- 4:00PM, Fri 7:30AM-12:00 PM. We are currently without a permanent Borough Secretary/Treasurer, so we will do our best to respond as quickly as possible.

Borough Council meetings are held the first Wednesday of every month at 7PM at Borough Hall. The public is always welcome!

Sincerely,
East Berlin Borough Council and Mayor

East Berlin Community Park

Located on the north side of town along Conewago Creek, this 17-acre recreation park
was opened in 2009. It gains in popularity and use every year!

  • 1,250 square foot Picnic Pavilion
  • Skatepark
  • Basketball Court
  • Paved 0.4 mile Walking Path
  • Children’s Playground
  • Soccer Field
  • Horseshoe Pit
  • Mulched Trail along Conewago Creek

How can I donate to the park?

Donations help us buy trees and plants, purchase equipment, and fund new projects. They also serve as matching funds when we seek public grants, like the ones we were awarded to build the basketball court, pave the walking path, and build a restroom facility (to be completed in 2019). A fundraising effort is underway to build a fenced dog park, too. You can also donate through our “Picnic Table Sponsor,” “Engrave-a-Brick,” and “Tribute Tree” programs. Or become a sponsor! The continued success of the Community Park is the result of generous donations from our many sponsors. Attend our Annual Golf Outing fundraiser at Briarwood Golf Course held the third Friday in September. We welcome volunteers and Scout troops, too!

What are the park hours and rules?
