Coronavirus Disease Valley Forge Response
Valley Forge National Historical Park is currently closed. This closure includes all park roads, parking lots, trails and open spaces. The regional Schuylkill River Trail remains open for through users; however, no access or parking is available within the park. We have made this difficult decision in order to better protect visitors, park employees and the resources that make this place special. Vehicles parked illegally will be ticketed. Vehicles that block emergency vehicle access (such as on roads or in front of gates) will be towed, as they present a serious safety hazard.
We are in a rapidly changing situation and we continue to follow guidance from the CDC and recommendations from state and local health authorities and in consultation with NPS Public Health Officials. Check the park’s website and social media for the latest information. Updates about the NPS response to #COVID19 will continue to be posted on www.nps.gov/coronavirus.

We will work to reschedule these activities, for a future date(s), once park operations resume in accordance with all relevant public health and local/state guidance. We look forward to inviting you to participate in these programs in the future.
