First step, verify. A park near me had a similar sign, it was just old, the rules had already been changed. You still want to follow-up, but your letter would be worded differently.

I found this online...

The rules online are the same, so it looks like you would need to start at the beginning with these guys.

Maybe be a letter to the town council?

EDIT: Looks like the rules are the same for all the parks in that township, might want to account for that in your letter.

Here is a thread at PAFOA that discusses addressing preemption violations, including a sample letter...

Since it appears to be a "township" regulation, IMO it should be addressed with the township Board of Commissioners.

Meeting schedule here.

That's it, right there. Police Chiefs seem to be far more liberal/progressive, and he has been immersed for decades. I would think it would be fun to watch him choke this down.
