Based on the recommendation of our Parks and Recreation Committee and to ensure the safety of our residents, all Borough Parks will be closed until further notice.

The closure is a precautionary measure to control the spread of COVID-19. We ask that you stay off all equipment until the parks have re-opened.

This restriction on use of the playgrounds and play apparatus is out of an abundance of precaution to help protect the community at large.
