New pavilions, but not for rent (yet)

Park improvement projects are almost complete, including the addition of pavilions at each township park. We appreciate the inquiries to reserve (rent) them, but for 2021 that is not possible.

Any use of the pavilions by 10 or more people requires 48-hour advance notice to the township, and even then such use is not exclusive.

Future additions are likely in 2022, but for now each is extremely limited on seating, garbage capacity, and parking (especially at Elm).

Therefore we ask all park visitors to take your garbage with you, leave them as you found them (including where tables are located), and help us manage parking by using the large lot at Brummitt, and at Elm use the church and library lots when they are closed. We have agreements with them.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation!
