COVID-19 Restrictions and Bristol Township Parks          

Additional COVID-19 restrictions have been put into place through January 4, 2021 and many of you are wondering what that means for your parks and playgrounds.  Please see the information below and contact us through facebook messenger on our Bristol Township Parks and Recreation page, phone (267-716-1647), or email (jbrown@bristoltownship.org, jfox@bristoltownship.org) with any additional questions or concerns.

 

Playgrounds

Playgrounds will remain open.  We do ask that masks are worn and adherence to social distancing recommendations occur while in a playground area with anyone outside of your immediate household.  If the playgrounds appear crowded, please consider using another playground area or returning at a later time.  If you or anyone in your household is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please do not use public play equipment.

Walking Paths and Passive Recreation Areas

Walking paths and passive recreation areas will remain open.  Please use masks and social distancing while walking near or passing anyone outside of your household on walking paths.

Restrooms

Restrooms have already closed for the season and will remain closed until early spring.

 

We ask that you remember that public parks are for all and respect your neighbors and other park visitors by adhering to guidelines.  Overall public health is our primary mission in municipal parks and recreation.  Our goal is to keep our parks as open as possible to provide places for children to play and for adults to exercise and spend time outdoors, benefitting both physical and mental health.  Adherence to guidelines is vital to keeping parks open.
