During the current COVID-19 outbreak and given the significant potential for surface contamination, all Souderton Borough recreation facilities are temporarily closed until the end of May, by order of Governor Wolf. Please refrain from using any playground equipment, park benches and picnic tables at this point in time. It is not possible to properly sanitize these pieces after every use and in an effort to slow the spread of this virus, we respectfully request that this ban be respected.

The park trails will be open for use but we are requesting that “social distancing” of 6′ be observed as much as possible.

At this time we do not expect there to be any interruption to Trash service. There will be no interruption to Police or Fire Department services at this time.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this challenging time for all of us.

Souderton Pool Pricing, Membership & General Info for the 2020 Season

Written by Laura Office on . Posted in Front Page

Souderton Community Swimming Pool

2020 Season Cancellation

The COVID-19 Pandemic resulted in significant disruption to our daily lives and daily routines. Businesses have been forced to close, other businesses operate under significant restriction. Schools have closed, recreational facilities have closed and it appears that the summer months will not follow our routine expectations. We all share in the growing frustration of the continuing restrictions and disruption.

The COVID-19 Pandemic has also impacted a variety of recreational sports programs and the opening of recreational facilities, including the Souderton Pool. Some pools have already made a decision to remain closed, while others are considering shortened seasons with restrictions to only local residents. Governor Wolf and the Montgomery County Health Department has announced that outdoor pool facilities can open in the yellow phase of the Governor’s re-opening plan but under restrictions to follow CDC guidelines and the Governor’s restrictions for business openings. The restrictions will impose significant occupancy limitations, maintain social distancing requirements, increase sanitizing of the facility and mandate additional staff responsibility and training. The restrictions will make it impossible to provide deck furnishings, will prohibit the use of the slides, will limit access to the bathhouse facilities and will not provide residents with equal opportunity to access the pool through the shortened pool season.

Upon careful review and following significant discussion, Souderton Borough Council reached a split decision to close the Souderton Pool through the 2020 season. The logistics of operating the pool under the mandated restrictions will create significant challenge to a limited staff and will negatively impact the overall experience of our patrons. Souderton Borough realizes the frustration and disappointment with this decision and we look forward to resuming normal pool service in the summer of 2021. Residents who purchased memberships will receive a full refund.

Earth Day – 2019 Community Clean Up- THANK YOU!!!

Written by nucitrus on . Posted in Front Page, News

Approximately 65 volunteers gathered on Saturday April 27th to participate in the community clean up.

Earth Day began in 1970 to create awareness for the Earth’s environment. Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22.

Souderton Borough volunteers worked together on Saturday, April 27, 2019 in the Souderton Community Park, the Souderton Pool, the Clock, Borough Building and Chestnut St Park. Volunteers helped beautify the town by raking leaves, picking up trash, weeding the beds, and spreading mulch to enhance the community for upcoming gatherings.

The event started at 9 am. After working hard from 9 am to 12 noon volunteers were treated to lunch. Participants were excited to find that lunch was provided by The Burger Shop of Main Street, Souderton. The beverages were donated by Jim and Martha Leary of Souderton.

Several groups volunteered including Moyer Indoor/Outdoor, Univest, Indian Valley Democrats, and the Souderton Charter School Collaborative. In addition to the groups of volunteers there were several local residents, borough staff, borough councilors, and Mayor John Reynolds.

The Borough would like to say thank you to the many volunteers for their hard work in making the town look so great. A special thank you to The Burger Shop and Jim and Martha Leary for their gifts of great food and drinks.

Below are some pictures of the event.
