Due to COVID-19 Park Playground Equipment Closed until Further Notice

As part of COVID-19 mitigation efforts, East Donegal Township is closing its park playground facilities until further notice.  The public will still be able to access trails, open spaces, and parking areas for passive & active recreation. Reservations for park facilities are no longer being accepted.

Many people are heading to the outdoors as a way to get exercise and relieve stress.  Just remember to practice social distancing to do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19.  This means we should spread out for outdoor activities; if you visit a public place and the parking lot or trailhead is crowded, try another spot, or head back to your neighborhood to take a walk.

The best advice to slow the spread of the coronavirus is to stay home. If you are looking to be outdoors, stay as close to home as possible including your backyard or neighborhood.

Visitors can help keep the park lands safe and clean by following these practices:

  • Avoid crowded parking lots and trailheads
  • Bring a bag and carry out your trash
  • Clean up after pets
  • Avoid activities that put you at greater risk of injury, as there is limited staff to assist

To help avoid exposure to COVID-19 and still enjoy the outdoors:

  • Don’t hike or recreate in groups – go with those under the same roof, and adhere to social distancing (stay 6 feet apart)
  • Take hand sanitizer with you and use it regularly
  • Avoid touching your face, eyes, and nose
  • Cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with a tissue or flexed elbow
  • If you are sick, stay home
