Township Closes All Parks Effective March 22, 2020

Out of abundance of caution, ALL township parks and facilities are CLOSED until further notice effective 9 PM on Sunday, March 22, 2020.  This includes the following:

  • Playwicki Farm – The trails, playground equipment, and bathrooms are closed.
  • Russell Elliott Memorial Park – The playground equipment, athletic fields, batting cages, trails, and bathrooms are closed.
  • Dolphin Swim Club – The athletic fields and skate park are closed.
  • Township Municipal Building – The athletic fields and the batting cage are closed.

This is being done in order to encourage social distancing and to protect the health of our residents.  The objective of social distancing is to reduce contact between persons.  We need to protect one another and cease with some normal activities so in the long term we can fight this virus.  We, as Americans, need to do our part and protect one another during this trying time.
