The Ralph C. Richardson Community Center and Park is a focal point for recreation activity within Commerce Township. The park and community center is located on the northwest corner of Oakley Park Road and Newton Road. The majority of the park site is wooded open space and unique prairie, accessed by nature trails. Outdoor facilities include one small soccer field, sand volleyball court, two playscapes, swings, horseshoe pit, picnic tables, grills and benches.
The Community Center was significantly renovated in 2017 and 2018. The multi-purpose facility is used as a senior center and by residents and organizations for special events on a rental basis for weddings, gatherings, etc.. Senior activities and programs are held at the center throughout the year, such as cards and lunches. A new, large, outdoor patio overlooks the rear portion of the park.
