Delhi Playground is Reopening

Posted: 08/22/20

The Delhi Playground located next to the pool is partially open from daylight to dusk. 

Playground Rules:

  • Follow social distancing recommendations of 12 feet and wear a mask
  • Children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult
  • Playground equipment is designed for children ages 2-12 years old
  • The use of the playground is at your own risk.

The swings, yellow sphere, and the two large play structures are open for play.  Countless hours have been spent weeding and preparing the mulch to prepare the grounds to pass insurance inspection.  Thanks to employees in the Summer Youth Employment Program, Kaylee Lewis and Stephanie Gatos, volunteers Hope Knapp, Anna Krusinski, and Sarah Poole, Pool Advisory Committee member Will Outsen, Highway Superintendent Daren Evans, and Councilmembers Janet Tweed and Christina Viafore for all their hard work to prepare the playground.

For public safety, please wear a face covering and maintain social distance between each child not in the same household. Play equipment is not sanitized. Please remain home if you or your child feels sick, and wash your hands frequently, including before and after using play equipment.  Click here for additional guidance from the CDC regarding visiting parks and recreational facilities.

The playground has been well-loved and well-used over the past decades but is showing all that use.  A group consisting of local parents, members of the Pool Advisory Committee, and Town Council, has begun the process to develop and implement plans for a new playground.  Further updates to come!

Road Work Alert

Posted: 06/11/20

Please be advised that on Wednesday, June 17, weather permitting, the Town of Delhi Highway Department will oil and stone the following locations:

  • Scotch Mountain Road
  • Bell Hill Road
  • Sutherland Road
  • The intersection of Fleming Road

Please expect delays and use extra caution when traveling on these roads.  

This process covers an existing road with a layer of oil and stone that helps seal damage to a roadway and extends the life of the surface at a fraction of the cost of resurfacing. This option is an effective way to seal cracks and prevent new ones.

The State phased reopening for our region is happening!

The Delhi Pool and Playground must remain closed for now. Before it can open, the Southern Tier region in which Delhi is located has to make it to Phase 4 of reopening. An annual risk assessment for the playground that will address any safety concerns needs to be completed as well.

Recreation is an important part of life. The Town of Delhi understands this and is working to facilitate options for our citizens. Currently, hiking trails are open and welcoming. Continue to practice social distancing and mask-wearing.

  • Bramley Mountain Trail access is located on Glen Burnie Rd
  • Mount Crawford Trails behind Delaware Academy can be accessed by Sheldon Park or the Lutheran Church on Rt. 28
  • O’Connor Fitness trail access is located at the far end of parking lot
  • Smith Pond Trail access starts at the Delaware Academy Sugar Shack
  • SUNY Delhi Outdoor Education Center is located off Rt 28 going toward Bovina and Andes.

Thank you for your patience as we work together.

We are in unprecedented times as we face the challenge of the coronavirus. We can get through this together by following the guidance given by the CDC and the state and county health departments. 
The coronavirus is spread by human interaction, so there is a lot that you can do to help minimize the spread.  You’ve probably heard it a million times, but keeping your hands clean is crucial. Be mindful of what you are touching and don't touch your face with unwashed hands.  Practice social distancing, and limit your interaction with others. It is critical that people keep a six-foot distance between each other.  Remember, that one can be a carrier of the virus even if they don’t display symptoms.  You must also stay home when feeling sick.  
The Greater Delhi Area Chamber of Commerce has a new website,, that will be available soon.  They will be offering suggestions to remind us how Delhi is still a great place to live, work and play while practicing social distancing. They will be providing resources for keeping you and your family happy, healthy and entertained!
If you are feeling lonely, please try one of the many apps that can help you stay connected with family and friends.  Facebook, Zoom, and Facetime are a few of the ways to stay in contact with your loved ones without being near them and potentially putting them and yourself at risk.
We WILL get through this together!
