Stroud Township has a couple large communities, including one of the county's largest gated communities, Penn Estates. The township consists of 34 square miles and is dedicated to increasing open space, parks and recreational opportunities. They have recently added walking trails, playgrounds, picnic areas and more. Additionally, the township owns & operates the Glenbrook Golf Course in Stroudsburg.
