COVID-19 RESPONSE UPDATE

Malvern Borough Parks – Closed

Posted on March 18, 2020

Malvern Borough continues to monitor best practices advised by Governor Wolf, the PA Department of Health, and the Chester County Health Department with regards to the Coronavirus pandemic. We have decided to close the Borough’s parks and playgrounds until further notice. After reviewing their usage, the Borough’s parks and playgrounds contain many communal touch points that present opportunities to transmit COVID-19. We understand how integral these facilities are to our community’s daily life, and very much appreciate that, but believe this to be the best course of action at this time. This closure shall include the following facilities:

  • All playground equipment and the gazebo at Burke Park
  • Basketball courts and baseball field at Quann Park
  • Basketball court at Herzak Park
  • All playground equipment at Rubino Park
  • Tennis courts, baseball fields, and playground equipment at the Paoli Memorial Grounds
  • Battlefield area at the Paoli Battlefield Park

Individuals are still permitted to walk through the parks, such as on the pedestrian pathways in Burke Park, but are not permitted to congregate at this time.

The walking trails in the Randolph Woods Nature Preserve and Paoli Battlefield Park will remain open for use during this time. Fresh air and exercise continues to be important through this period, just continue to practice common sense approaches such as social isolation barriers and proper hygiene before/after visiting these facilities.

Great Valley School District will continue their food distribution program as outlined in Burke Park during this time.

The Malvern Farmers Market will also operate with an adjusted program intended to promote social distancing and limit congregation. Please visit the website for the Malvern Farmers Market’s website in the link below for additional information:

Thank you for your understanding as we continue to navigate this situation.
