Lakemont Park to remain closed this summer

The Blair County commissioners this morning approved an amendment to the Lakemont Partnership lease, allowing the park to remain closed for a second summer while renovations are underway.

Lakemont Park will now reopen in the spring of 2019. The park is undergoing a transformational renovation from what was once a conventional amusement park to what will now become a family entertainment center with family-focused programming and entertainment, in addition to some amusements.

Renovations to begin in April 2018 include the addition of a new miniature golf course, new electric go-karts, batting cages and enhancements to the waterpark.

These renovations, which were originally planned for 2017, were delayed due to the unexpected passing of RADD Development Co.’s Lakemont Partnership managing partner, Donald Devorris.
