Richland Township Park is an athletic facility that offers a large shelter house, basketball courts, and baseball fields. Richland Township leases the shelter house and basketball courts to Ellettsville Parks Department.  The baseball fields are leased by Richland Bean Blossom Youth Sports (RBBYS). Richland Township also leases their old office building, 102 S. Park Street, to the Town of Ellettsville and the Street Department.

Recently the Township has upgraded the baseball concession stands by adding new roofs, new ceilings, LED lighting, and new painting. In addition to the concessions stands, the baseball dugouts have been upgraded with new paint, new bleachers, and concrete pads were installed for the blenches on the yellow field.  The Township worked with the Boy Scouts Troop 148 to upgrade the basketball courts with new backboards, rims, and paint.

In 2017 Richland Township worked with Monroe County Soil and Water along with Echo Logic to restore the stream bank along side the baseball fields. The Township is currently working to fixed new erosion issues that were caused from the February 2019 flood. 

In 2018 Richland Township converted the old Ellettsville swimming pool into a parking lot located on Turtleback/Chester Drive. The parking lot was made to provide additional parking especially during baseball season and the Monroe County Fall Festival.

Richland Township Parks are used every September to host the annual Monroe County Fall Festival.
