YELLOW PHASE PARKS & RECREATION PROPERTIES UPDATE:
The Chestnuthill Township Board of Supervisors and staff have created a plan for our park properties in line with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources; park properties including the "Chestnuthill Township Park", “West End Regional Park”, “Big Woods Natural Area” and the “Silver Valley Natural Area” will all open for trail use and passive recreation, although in accordance with State and Federal guidelines we encourage maintaining a distance of 6-feet from other trail users. The "Chestnuthill Township Park" will have new temporary hours, Monday thru Friday from 9am to 3pm and all playgrounds, basketball courts and volleyball courts will remain closed during this phase.
YELLOW PHASE RECYCLING CENTER/TRANSFER STATION/COMPOST FACILITY UPDATE:
The Board of Supervisors considers the Chestnuthill Township Recycling Center/Transfer Station and Compost Facilities to be essential to all Township Residents and therefore will remain open. Operations will continue unchanged from the previous phase, although we do ask that you continue to avoid contact with other residents and staff as much as possible.
