Parks and Recreation Outlook

Summer is prime time for the West Goshen Parks and Recreation department. In a typical summer, you’d find Parks and  Recreation Department Director Ken Lehr checking in on camps, clinics and concerts, but in a recent conversation he shared how and why Summer 2020 will be different.

“We live for summer!” said Lehr. “Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve had to cancel all of the great programming we had planned. I know that residents, especially the kids, are disappointed…I am too!”

Camp programs such as the Summer Recreation Program, Summer Teen Program, Skateboarding Camps and Summer Sports Clinics have all been cancelled. Likewise, events that will draw crowd such as the Fourth of July Bike Parade, Summer Concert Series and Theater in the Park have also been cancelled. Finally, all bus trips through August have been cancelled.

Lehr and his team have been brainstorming alternatives for the summer. “We want to try to continue to offer activities, but need to make sure that what we offer is safe.”

They’ve also started contemplating what the Fall will include. “We’re not sure what kind of environment we’ll be in then so we’ve been considering some of our usual events as well as some creative alternatives. We will hold dates for favorites like our Harvest Festival, but will hold off on any decisions until we are closer.”

With the cancellation of the 2020 West Goshen Summer Recreation Programs due to COVID-19 precautions, the West Goshen Park and Recreation Department is offering an exciting new program for families to enjoy together:  West Goshen Summer Family Camp, a four-week program designed to have families share the fun of summer camp together in a safe outdoor environment.
