The playground at Bernel Road Park in Patton Township will be temporarily closed starting Wednesday as it undergoes repairs.

The area's rubber safety surfacing will be removed and replaced due to upheaval and unevenness caused by freeze-thaw, Centre Region Parks and Recreation Director Pamela Salokangas said. The playground will be blocked off through July 3.

However, the rest of the park will remain open and the pavilion will be accessible, a CRPR press release said.
