The Township of O'Hara maintains a robust park system for the use of our residents and others. In an effort to provide recreational opportunities for our residents and others while properly addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, the following plan for opening our parks has been developed. The plan focuses on a systematic opening of our park facilities beginning June 5th with a focus on user safety. Low volume and/or low touch areas will be opened first.
High touch and/or high volume areas will remain closed upon entry into the Green Phase. This is being done out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of our residents, visitors and staff. The opening of these facilities will be evaluated on a weekly basis. This evaluation will include information on COVID-19 cases released by the Allegheny County Health Department, industry guidance and other factors.
The facilities that are considered high touch and/or high volume are:
- Basketball courts
- Flex courts (the LAWCC may use the flex court in Beulah Frey Park for summer programming following appropriate summer camp protocols approved by the Township.)
- Picnic pavilions
- Sand volley ball court
