    HARRISBURG (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Pennsylvania State Parks are working toward reopening swimming pool and beach areas.

    Beginning on June 6 all 58 state park beaches will open for swimming with State Park pools in green and yellow zones reopening on June 13.

    Gov. Tom Wolf has announced that all PA counties will be in the yellow phase by June 5.

    Capacity at beaches and pools will be limited to 50 percent of normal capacity.

    Safety measures must be taken why at the pools, including wearing a mask when not in the water.

    “Water-based activity is an integral part of the state park experience in Pennsylvania and, with appropriate protocols in place to ensure safety and as staffing permits, this department continues to reopen its state parks and forests so that Pennsylvanians can realize all the benefits of being outdoors,” DCNR Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn said.

    Tent camping has already reopened in State Parks with cabins, cottages, lodges and yurts opening on June 12.
