Oak Hall Regional Park grand opening set for Saturday

Early construction was set back by some flooding, but the Oak Hall Regional Park is complete and ready for its grand opening ceremony Saturday.

Centre Region Parks and Recreation Director Ron Woodhead will start the ceremony at noon, and the American Legion Post 245 honor guard will raise the flag at the College Township site before those involved in the park’s creation are recognized and an inaugural walk is taken around the perimeter trail.

The park, at 120 Linden Hall Road near Boalsburg, has been in the making since the purchase of the land from Penn State in 2005.
