Sustainability Initiative
Parks Division Maintenance Crews collect an average of 10,000+ lbs of trash per month from the Parks System. In an effort to follow our comprehensive plan goal of using best management practices to conserve natural resources and establish a philosophy of environmental sustainability a pilot program for carry -in carry -out trash free parks has been established at some sites. At other sites receptacles have been moved/removed to allow for greater efficiency and reduced impact on the sites.
These changes will allow for:
  • Operational efficiencies correlating to reduced fuel and labor consumption.
  • Reduce soil compaction and path damage by reducing the need for heavy equipment to enter sites for refuse collection.
  • Encourage Park users to bring reusable containers.
  • Improve the appearance of sites by reducing the number of trash receptacles that detract from the beauty of natural sites.
  • Increase visitor safety by reducing the number of bees, wasps and other pests in picnic areas and play areas.
Thank you for partnering with us to keep our Parks Clean and Green!
Penn Wynne Park Survey -  In 2014 - 2015, Lower Merion Township will update the master plan for Penn Wynne Park, a ten acre, active park located in the Penn Wynne section of the Township.  Master plans provide a guide for appropriate park uses and a long-range vision for future development and programming.  Your input is an important part of the process.  Even if you do not visit the park, we appreciate your taking a few minutes to complete this brief survey.  Thank you! 

The Ardmore Pool and Belmont Hills Pool Complex fall under the purview of the Parks and Recreation Department, as does permitting and scheduling of all Township parks and community meeting rooms and oversight of the Ardmore Avenue Community Center.

Here is some insight into our software system for our Membership and Program Registration. The software enables participants to view programs offered and register on-line, via mail or walk-ins for pool memberships and programs.

If you walk or mail in your registration, an online account will be created for you by the Parks and Recreation Department Staff. The first time you register you will be sent a User name and password to access your account. If you have on-line access, please visit to log in and review your account information. You may wish to update/change things like your password, emergency contact and phone number, medical conditions, email addresses and mobile notifications. If you do not have on-line access, no need to worry. You can still mail or walk-in to register for pool memberships and programs. 

Hints for Account Updates

The “Account Log-In” tab is located on the left hand side of the window.

Once logged in, a message will appear on the left hand side, “Welcome Your Last Name Household”. Please click on that link, which will take you to an overview of your household’s accounts and memberships.

Please be sure to change your username or password at this time. Directions can be found at the top of each page.

You can review and update each Household member’s information on this page as well, by clicking on the member’s name and then edit member information. If someone has any medical conditions, this is where you would edit those conditions.

Receipt information can be found under the finances tab at the top of the page.

This new system has a lot of great features. We encourage you to take some time to navigate through and see all the programs Lower Merion Parks and Recreation offers.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office.
