Parks & Recreation

Dear Conway Residents,

Conway Council, Conway Mayor and Community understand that the COVID-19 virus has impacted all our lives, both professionally and personally.  We are in this together.

As a reminder, we would like to strongly discourage the use of our public playground areas during this time.  While it is okay for families to be outside and practice the social distancing recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), we also want to remind people that the use of public playgrounds are listed as something to AVOID.  Conway Borough cannot routinely sanitize this equipment as recommended by the CDC.  So therefore, we ask that you avoid using the playground equipment.

We realize that this is not an easy request, we understand… truly we do.  Conway playgrounds include equipment at the Conway Municipal playground, Ed Gratty Park, Buttermore Park and the park on Catherine Drive.

Thank you for your consideration and understanding.

Conway Council Members

Conway Mayor Debbie Giska-Rose

Dog waste must be removed immediately from sidewalks, streets, and non-owner yards by the dog-walker.

Dog Waste Stations were recently purchased and placed at the Municipal Building Park at 9th Street, Buttermore Park on 3rd Avenue, Gratty Park on South Gross Street, and at the ball field on South Gross Street.  Waste baggies and a waste receptacle are provided at each station.   Please use the baggies as needed. 

Thank You to the Conway Civic Womens Club for purchasing the station at Buttermore Park.

Conway Borough Code prohibits animals running at large.  Dogs and cats must be on a leash and under control at all times.

Dogs are not permitted at Gratty Park or on the ball fields.
