Why Newberry Township?!?

Newberry Township is a growing residential community situated between Harrisburg and York. Because of this prime location, there is easy access to enjoy all the cultural events offered by both cities with very little travel, while living in an area that is suburban to the city environment. Newberry Township offers a variety of housing opportunities for all income levels. These opportunities include townhouses, single-family attached and detached homes, mobile homes, and apartments. According to the 2010 Census, the population of the Township was 15,285.  The total area of the Township is 30.7 square miles; 30.4 of which is land and .3 is water.

History of Newberry Township:
Prior to the coming of the first settlers in 1736, Newberry Township was inhabited by Susquehannock Indians.  Settlers used the Middletown Ferry to access the west bank of the River and reached what is now Newberry Township, settled throughout the Fishing Creek Valley.  Newberry Township was organized in 1742 and included what is now Fairview Township.

A Great Place to Live, Work, Play, Eat and Shop!

LIVE:  A simple Sunday drive will help you understand why many are thankful to call Newberry Township home.  From its rolling hillsides, lush wooded areas, open spaces  and farmlands, to the diverse housing developments, Newberry Township has something for everyone.  There are two school districts within the Township.  Northeastern is in the southern end of the Township, while West Shore is in the Northern portion of the Township.  And residents can rest assured knowing they are protected by three Fire Departments who serve the Township:  Newberry Township Fire Department, Goldsboro Fire Company and York Haven Fire Department. 

WORK:  There are many small businesses located within Newberry Township, as well as some corporations and family-owned businesses.  So, if you’re looking for employment, drive around the Township and check for signs on doors or windows at our small businesses and maybe you’ll find the job you’ve been looking for.    Or it's a short drive to the cities of York and Harrisburg if you prefer to work in the city. 

PLAY:  There are so many options for recreation for residents in the Township.  Newberry has two parks within the Township.  Shelley Park is located in Manchester on Cassel Road.  It offers 36 acres with baseball and soccer fields, a basketball court, walking trails, a tot lot and a pavilion rental.  Cly Park is located in York Haven on Cly Road.  It offers 6 acres with ball fields and a pavilion rental.  The residents of Valley Green can enjoy watching their small children play in the Tot Lots, swim in the community pool or play tennis.  Residents of our single-family developments can enjoy walks through their neighborhoods and playing in their backyards.  Whatever you enjoy, Newberry Township offers it.  So, take a walk in the park, catch a car race on a Saturday night in the summer, walk around and browse at the Flea Market on the weekend, get in some leisurely golfing at the Golf course, work-out at the local fitness center, or take a short drive to the river for some boating and fishing or to the mountains for skiing.  You may simply enjoy sitting on you back porch and watching the sun go down.  These are just some of the wonderful recreation ideas that Newberry has to offer. 

EAT:  Hungry?  Then you’ve come to the right place.  Newberry Township offers many solutions to fill that empty spot.  There’s a variety of pizza/sub shops, fast food, a sports bar, ethnic foods and sit down restaurants.  And what’s better on a hot, summer day than some ice cream/frozen yogurt or a slushy?  So, whatever you crave, you won’t have to drive far.  . 

SHOP:  OK, shopping in the Township may be a little sparse.  But how many of us have been thankful for a convenience store on a holiday, a quick run to the hardware store for those last-minute projects and the variety of shops for specific items.  And with Newberry Pointe, at the intersection of Old Trail and Pleasant View Drive, there are many more opportunities to shop.  With the improvements at Newberry Commons, you now even have two options where to shop for groceries.
