Welcome to the new destination playground in East Goshen Township Park. Over six-hundred children picked every play piece and the Township is excited to share it with the community! We recently had some wonderful local kids help us shoot a Playground 101 video, to highlight some of the fun elements as well as parental considerations! We paid them in milk and cookies – and they did an amazing job! A special thank you goes out to Christina Burkhardt and Christina B Productions for directing and producing the film!
Playground is a Pet Free Zone
The entire playground area is a pet-free zone per Township ordinance. Coming from the parking lot, the pet-free zone begins before the bridge. Coming from the backside, the pet-free zone starts at the three large grassy hills. The grass hills are actually play mounds meant to be played on by our kids.
Playground Bricks, Round II is open!
There is a new playground development to share – The Friends of East Goshen (501c3) is offering a second Buy a Brick Program! The first round went really well, it is wonderful to walk down the path to the playground and see so many families that want to part a part of this project. Members of the community can purchase $100 bricks (tax-deductible). This is a wonderful opportunity to recognize loved ones, friends, etc. in East Goshen Park! Net proceeds from the Brick donation program will fund future park improvement projects. The open brick period is open through December 31st after which a ceremony will be held after the bricks are installed, spring 2019. To learn more and to purchase a brick visit here.
