South Heidelberg Township 2020 Summer Playground Cancelled

2020 Summer Playground Announcement

Due to the health concerns relating to COVID-19, the 2020 Playground Program has been cancelled. This decision to cancel the Township Summer Playground program was made based on several factors including but not limited to:

(1) The uncertainty of county status (red, yellow, green) as it relates to the Governor’s order.

(2) The ability and challenges involved in properly sanitizing and maintaining hygiene guidelines outlined via CDC/PA Parks & Recreation Society guidance for operating.

(3) Overall concern for the health and safety of the children in our program and their parents/extended family as well as our playground staff.

The decision was not easy but was made now to allow families to plan for summer without our program. The Township and its Recreation Board will be determining other opportunities to support the children of our community through the summer and do so in a way that complies with outlined state and CDC guidance. Thank you.
