Services in Centerville/Washington Township are provided not only by Washington Township, but through a cooperative network of public bodies that work for the common good.
The township, along with the City of Centerville, helps fund many of them, including the historical society, diversity council, senior center and Americana Festival. Other entities, such as the school district, library and park district, work separately but in coordination with local government.
The Centerville School system is comprised of 11 schools serving more than 7,300 students. Five of the schools have been designated "Blue Ribbon" schools.
The public library has two locations: Woodbourne Library, 6060 Far Hills Ave., and Centerville Library, 111 W. Spring Valley Pike. The library was recently ranked best in the nation by the Hennen's American Public Library Rating (HAPLR) Index among libraries of similar size.
The park district is responsible for maintaining 48 parks with nearly 1,000 acres of green space in Centerville/Washington Township. Programs are offered for all ages.
The group provides educational and recreational activities, health services, classes, social events, trips and volunteer opportunities for seniors in and around Washington Township. Hithergreen Senior Center is located at 5900 Hithergreen Drive.
