WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Improvements and rules changes are under way for a pair of parks in the Waynesboro area.

Civic groups and nonprofit organizations are being contacted to solicit money and volunteers for renovating the bathrooms at Red Run Park in Rouzerville, Pa. Also, shingles are being put on the small buildings there as the Washington Township Supervisors consider using metal for the large pavilion roof.

"We are fixing up some buildings. The roofs are in bad shape," Township Manager Mike Christopher said.

In the Borough of Waynesboro, the rules at Rotary Park at Wayne Gardens might be amended.

"There's been some discussion to change the rules to permit bicycles, roller blades, roller skates and dogs," Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger said.

Neighbors suggested those changes at a routine summer meeting at the park.

"They want to be able to walk their dogs and have their kids ride their bikes," Hamberger said.


The recreation board drafted new rules and asked the borough council to consider them. A decision from the council is expected Wednesday night.

A dedication ceremony officially opened Rotary Park in June 2008.
