Today groups of people gathered under pavilions for picnics at Memorial Park in Williamsport. Splash Cove was open with lifeguards on duty, but the playground at Memorial Park is closed because of reported hazardous conditions.

According to comments made on Williamsport Councilman Derek Slaughter’s Facebook page:

“The playground area at Memorial Park has been removed, temporarily, due to hazardous conditions created by broken equipment. The City’s Recreation Department is hoping to secure grant funding in order to build a new recreational facility.”
