Winter / Spring 2022 Program & Events Guide

Director’s Notes

2022!!!! How did we get HERE already? It seems like just yesterday that we started the new decade – and what a crazy decade it has been! In spite of the challenges we have all faced, the Department Staff has continued to line up some great programs for the community and the Winter/Spring 2022 season is no exception.

The Family Nature Series is going strong with 15 different sessions running from January to the middle of May. Whether you like to walk in the daylight or in the dark, want to listen for owls or look for frogs – we have a program for you! We’ll look at the stars, search for wildlife babies and seek out spring flowers. These programs are very popular and spaces are limited so be sure to register early!

We are also hosting over a dozen adult programs this season. Our financial workshop series will cover the topics of college planning, retiring and long-term care. If gardening interests you, there are workshops on vegetable gardening, gardening in small spaces, composting, wildflowers and pollinators. We are also offering 2 levels of Tai Chi and three craft workshops.

The Township continues to follow current safety guidelines, requires staff and participants to wear face masks and prepares program supplies into individual supply bags. The health and safety of our residents, our customers and our staff are our top priorities.

Your parks and trails remain open so dress for the weather and take a walk in a park this winter season! The parks look very different in January than they do in July! Come out and see for yourself!

We look forward to seeing you in our parks and programs!

Parks and Recreation Department vs COVID-19 – Resiliency is Required!

As the war against COVID-19 rages on, the Parks and Recreation Department is committed to our community and continues to offer as many recreational opportunities as we can. We are requiring that every individual who attends a program is registered so that if we became aware of an exposure at a program, we have the ability to contact everyone who participated. Program staff, instructors and participants are required to wear masks and have their temperature screened upon arrival at the program site. Participation numbers are limited so that social distancing can be accommodated. Hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes are available at all programs and participant supplies are pre-packaged for your safety. All of these steps require a little extra work but it allows us to safely offer programs to you and your families. This Program Brochure outlines programs that we could offer safely at the time the brochure was prepared (November 2021).

2022 Spring Events and Summer Programs – The Department is making tentative plans for some of our traditional spring events (trout rodeos, egg hunt, etc.) and summer programs (camps and playground). As our restrictions are lifted, the Department will be ready to launch modified versions of these events and programs.

Please check our website (www.springtwpberks.org) and Facebook page (SpringTwpParks) regularly for program and event updates. Registrations may be limited so you don’t want to miss out!

Park facilities continue to be open and available for your enjoyment. Social distancing and face coverings are recommended while using public parks and trails.

Thank you for your support of our programs, respectful use of the parks and your patience!
