Kennywood has delayed its planned 2020 opening again, due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in Allegheny County.

In an announcement posted on the park’s website, Kennywood said that both the West Mifflin attraction and its sister water park, Sandcastle in West Homestead, would postpone their planned July 11 re-openings.

The parks were scheduled to welcome season pass holders beginning July 6 and the general public a few days later.

“Our top priority at Kennywood and Sandcastle is the health and safety of our guests and team members, and the community at large,” the park said in a statement. “While we are looking forward to the start of our summer season, we understand the reasoning behind the recent order and stay at home request, and will do our part by postponing our scheduled July 6 opening.

“We believe strongly in the plan developed by our teams at Kennywood and Sandcastle to best protect the health and safety of all those visiting and working at our parks,” the park said. “We will continue to work towards opening this summer as soon as safely possible and providing the clean, safe and fun experience we have been proud to provide for the Greater Pittsburgh area since 1898.”
