We are moving forward with work rebuilding the Spa here at Allentown. The contractors have inserted the rebar piping framing.  This will be used as the supportive metal structures to later form the plaster. With the new layout of the Spa, the inspection by the Health Department has experienced some delays.

We will update you of the progress through Allentown staff members or on pgparks.com

Again, we appreciate your patience.

Allentown Patrons and Friends:

Thank you for your continued patience as we work to repair the Spa at Allentown.  We were pleased to hear that the Health Department has approved the plans and work on the rebuilding the spa is beginning.

On October 13, the piping was delivered and our contractor began laying the piping for the spa.  This will be followed by the addition of the metal structure to support and form the plaster. This should take a few days.  After that, the Health Department will inspect the piping and structure.

Once we have that approval, the spa will be plastered, and after 10 days of curing of the plaster, the spa and surrounding area will be tiled.

The Health Department will then inspect the operation of the spa prior to its re-opening.

We will update you of the progress through Allentown staff members or on pgparks.com.  Again, we appreciate your patience.
