How Do I...?

Springfield Township Parks

Springfield Township maintains in excess of 117 acres of permanently protected open space for active and passive recreation purposes. Parks are open from dawn to dusk.

Governor Wolfe issued a STAY AT HOME ORDER for Montgomery County. This order outlines allowable individual activities such as “engaging in outdoor activity, such as walking, hiking or running if they maintain social distancing”.

Please note, although all public parks in Springfield Township are open for use, they will continue to operate under a “no winter maintenance” approach. This means no repairs will be completed for the foreseeable future. Playgrounds will remain closed, basketball rims will be absent from the backboard, water fountains will remain shut off and Mutt Mitts will not be replenished.

Fishing is permitted at Hillcrest Pond, however, please remain 6 feet apart, wear masks and gloves. Sandy Run Park will remain closed for fishing. Fishing close to home is encouraged and will reduce the spread of COVID-19.

As a reminder for dog owners, please bring your own waste bags with you when visiting public parks. Mutt Mitts are provided as a courtesy service, they are not a park requirement.
