Roseland Waterpark is not reopening Friday like it originally planned.
Earlier, Messenger Post Media and News 10NBC reported the park planned to reopen on Friday with modifications including a wave pool with no waves and the Splash Factory.
The park took to Facebook to announce the delay. It explained that the park received word from the state saying Roseland would not be reopening on Friday.
Steven Fuller, vice president of Bristol Mountain, said in a statement Friday:
“After many conversations throughout the day with New York’s Empire State Development and the New York State Department of Health we will not be operating the pools at Roseland Waterpark at this time. While we were disappointed with the final determination we certainly respect the decision and appreciate the work that our local agencies have been tasked with during this unprecedented time. We also want to thank our staff for their hard work in getting the park ready to open, our passholders, and the community for their continued support. We look forward to more guidance in the near future in hopes to be able to provide a safe and enjoyable outdoor activity for families to cool off in the summer heat.”
