Richland Township Community Park:

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the State of Pennsylvania have encouraged social distancing measures as a way to mitigate the spread of the novel Corona Virus (COVID-19).  To help achieve compliance, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, Richland Township Officials have closed all recreational facilities in the Richland Park.  This includes all playgrounds, ball fields/sporting facilities, DEK rink, and restrooms.  This is being done to encourage social distancing and slow the spread of the virus.  Richland strongly urges all community members to change their daily behavior to reduce the risk from COVID-19, particularly to protect our most vulnerable populations.  If you choose to exercise in Richland Park, please adhere to the CDC’s guidelines for maintaining social distance (see below).
