Codorus State Park closes pool due to lifeguard shortage

Due to a shortage of lifeguards, Codorus State Park will only operate the splash pad — a play area with jets of water — this season.

That means the pool will be closed until the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is able to hire more lifeguards.

Meanwhile, the splash pad will be closed temporarily from May 31 to June 3 and from June 6 to 10.
