Red Run Park 

Park Information:  All of Washington Township Park bathrooms are now open and 
pavilion rentals as well as Rouzerville Community Center reservations are being taken. 
We are NOT sanitizing the play equipment, tables or benches.  Please remember social distancing 
when in the parks and at your event. Everyone is required to follow CDC and DOH guidelines.

Bands at Red Run Park- We are sad to say but, in light of not knowing when we can 
gather in large groups again the Washington Township Supervisors have decided to cancel all 
bands for the year of 2020 at Red Run Park. We understand how disappointing this may 
be and we sincerely thank you for your understanding. 

Red Run Express - Until further notice the train at Red Run Park will not be running. 
We are not able to safely operate Red Run Express under the currant situation and will keep this 
post updated as things tend to change. We hope to re-evaluate the situation around Labor Day.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED to drive the train.
