Lower Frederick Township encourages all of our residents to: Stay Home, Stay Safe, Stay Healthy. We have joined with many other townships across the state to close our athletic fields, basketball courts and playgrounds.  The Parks are open to use the trails but we ask you to keep a safe distance from everyone (6 Feet).  Thank you, for your understanding.

3/23/2020: At his 2:00pm press conference Governor Wolf announced a “Stay-At-Home” order for Montgomery County. He is asking that everyone stay at home except for essential needs. If we all work together to comply with this request we can help to slow down the spread of the Covid-19 virus. More information to come as it becomes available.

Lower Frederick Township Parks – Closure Notice
effective immediately & until further notice 

This communication serves as status report for the Lower Frederick Township Parks. The Township’s goal is to encourage recommended social distancing and discourage the congregation of groups of people during the COVID-19 situation.

Below is a list of park and park amenity closures:
– All playgrounds and basketball courts within LFT parks are closed until further notice. These facilities are the ones most likely to allow spread of the virus and do not encourage social distancing.
– All restroom facilities (portable toilets)
– The Cuddy Park dog park is closed.

At this time, all Township parks will remain open (other than the dog park) and visitors can continue to access trails and open spaces.

Lower Frederick Township has several parks and open space properties with trails, so there are plenty of places to maintain your 6’ distance from others. In order to avoid larger crowds, but still give you the opportunity to get some fresh air, we strongly encourage you to visit your local neighborhood park.

Your safety is our priority, but we need all of you to assist with that as well. If you have any questions please email the township at staff@lowerfrederick.org.

Please make sure that if you have any symptoms you call your health care provider and talk with them. The CDC and Pennsylvania Department of Health both emphasize that the best way to prevent the spread of Coronavirus is to practice these good health habits:
• Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
• Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily.
