Come Home to Watsontown

Northumberland County Pennsylvania

Watsontown Borough

Northumberland County Pennsylvania

Watsontown is a community of about 2,255 residents located in Northumberland County, in the heart of central Pennsylvania’s beautiful Susquehanna River Valley. Watsontown has historic homes, a fine assortment of shops and restaurants, access to recreation along the Susquehanna River and a great quality of life for our residents. Watsontown offers an easy commute to major employers in more metropolitan areas while maintaining that small town feeling that many of us seek when deciding where to live. That’s why “Come Home to Watsontown” is more than a slogan; it is a way of life.

Watsontown Borough made the decision to close Memorial Park and 8th Street Park effective today, April 1st. The decision was based on the very real need to keep people as safe as possible during the Coronavirus epidemic. The closure does not mean that the park is completely off limits but it does mean that children should not be using the play equipment and groups of children and/or adults should not be together as specified by the governor. You are welcome to visit the park, walk your dog, or just enjoy some time with nature along the river, but please maintain social distancing at all times. If you have questions about the closure feel free to call the borough office. ... See MoreSee Less

Out of an abundance of caution and in an effort to keep everyone safe during the Coronavirus epidemic we have decided to close the lobby of the borough office effective Wednesday, April 1st. The office hours will remain the same and we will do our very best to continue to serve the needs of our residents during this time but hope to limit personal contact as much as possible. Please utilize US mail or the drop box for electric payments this month if you can and feel free to call us for other needs or concerns. Also please let us know if you need some extra ordinary help during these extra ordinary times. Whatever it might be, don't be afraid to ask, we're all in this together and we'll get through it together.
Also due to the current situation we have decided to close 8th Street Park and Memorial Park effective April 1st. We know this is tough on the kids but during the epidemic we must err on the side of caution and public safety.
