About Montgomery Township

Montgomery Township is a municipality situated at the edge of Montgomery County, amongst a group of surrounding suburban municipalities in Montgomery and Bucks Counties. The Township is governed by a 5-member Board of Supervisors, and supported by nearly 100 full-time staff members. In addition to our Board and staff members, the Township has over 130 community volunteers who serve on 16 different boards and commissions.

The Township is 10.82 square miles, has a population of over 25,000 residents (24,790 per 2010 census), and is located in the North Penn School district. Community neighborhoods range in various housing options: single-family homes, townhomes, age-restricted communities, and apartment complexes.

The Montgomery Township Community & Recreation Center and the Montgomery Mall are two major establishments within the Township, offering recreation programs, shopping, and business opportunities for all. Outdoor recreation is heavily favored in the Township as well, with 14 different parks and a scenic parkway trail for residents to enjoy. In 2013, PennDOT finished constructing the 202 Parkway through the Township, which has been designated as a Scenic Byway, the only roadway in Montgomery County with this designation.  The parkway trail offers an 8.4 mile long trail for biking, walking/running, and inline skating.
