WAYNESBORO, Pa. — New rules adopted for the Dunlap Family Skatepark will open it to skateboarders over the winter.
The Washington Township (Pa.) Supervisors on Wednesday modified regulations for the skatepark at Pine Hill Regional Recreation Area off Mentzer Gap Road. The new rules will eliminate the stipulation that the skatepark be closed between December and April.
Skateboarders and parents concerned about the facility being closed on fair weather days have peppered township officials with requests to open it.
Waynesboro resident Donna Swauger gave the supervisors a petition with 100 signatures asking the skatepark be opened immediately.
“I think the weather is more important than the dates used before,” Supervisor Stephen Kulla said.
The supervisors decided the skatepark will be closed only when snow or ice is on the concrete. The entire park closes at dusk daily.
