The borough has an extensive recreational facility at Island Park. Located off Water Street, Island Park, a 62-acre multi-facility area, was established as the site for community and recreational activities in the Borough of Blossburg in 1910, and has historically served as a focal point for the community. The open space of the park has been preserved over the years, with additions of formal recreation areas over time as well. The Southern Tioga School District football, track and baseball teams, as well as Little League and area softball leagues, all utilize the park’s facilities on a regular basis.
Community functions such as the annual celebration of the Blossburg State Coal Festival, wedding receptions, reunions, private parties and the like are also held at the park regularly.
