HOLLIDAYSBURG — Admission to Lakemont Park will remain free when it opens next month as a community park.
While admission to the park will remain free, the cost of using park facilities and rides will vary.
After being closed for two summers to pursue renovations, park representatives advised Blair County commissioners on Tuesday that Lakemont Park will open its doors on May 25 for outdoor activities and events.
“We are stepping away from what people would consider an amusement park,” said Andrea Devorris Cohen, whose family co-owns Lakemont Park.
Renovations include creation of new mini-golf courses, four basketball courts, four batting cages, two volleyball courts and a playground. It also calls for improvements to the park’s pool, the addition of six LakeMonster paddle boats and
