Winter preparation of Cranberry’s three major parks is underway. Restrictions on the use of fields, roads, restrooms, parking lots and other facilities will remain in place until spring of 2014. In Community Park, Kids Castle playground and the new Kids Castle restroom will stay open through the winter season but the park’s Tennis court restroom building will be closed. Park Road will be blocked by a wooden gate just past the entrance to Dog Park Road, which will stay open to provide access to the Dog Park itself, which will remain open all year long. In North Boundary Park, the soccer field restroom will remain open, but all others will be closed. The park’s walking trail, along with all of the park’s roads and parking areas, will remain open throughout the winter season; snow will also be plowed from them, although at a lower priority than streets used for normal traffic. And in Graham Park, only the Baseball complex family changing room will remain open – the other two will be closed. The first two parking lots in Graham Park – one at the baseball campus and one at the fishing lake, will remain open. However a gate will be installed just before the Mashuda Bridge prior to Thanksgiving. Grass playing fields in all three parks will be closed for play until they are reopened in the spring.
