Lake Township Park - The park officially closed on November 1st. We often leave it open as weather permits through the later fall. The off season lot will always be available if the main gates are locked. It has been a great season at the park despite the current situation. We have made improvements to the back baseball field, the soccer fields have been reseeded and improved, and are in the process of installing sinks at the North and South pavilions for your use next season. We pray the park will be back to normal for the 2021 season and all activities will be able to resume!
