Renaissance Park

Saturday morning we stopped by Renaissance Park only to be disappointed that it was closed, yet again. The park is supposed to open at 8 AM, we were there just before 11 Am. We also came back a little after noon, and it was still closed, no surprise there. Taxpayers are denied use of a park that they paid for! If you go there and can't get in during the hours listed on the sign, please write to Debbie Conway at: debbie_conway@nps.gov Maybe if enough people complain somebody at Steamtown will take this seriously.
