Fun at the park

Gabriel Van Camp, 6-year-old grandson of Karen Viderman of Wellsburg, careened down an inflatable slide at Brooke Hills Park Tuesday. The slide and a bounce house have been set up near the park’s Bald Eagle Shelter for the first day of the park’s three-day 60th anniversary celebration. It continues today with free admission to the paddle boats, half-price admission to the miniature golf course and swimming pool, a free concert featuring Cross Creek from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and pending suitable weather, fireworks at dusk. Descendants of W.C. and Anna Gist, who donated the land for the park, are slated to be on hand at the park’s clubhouse at 4:30 p.m. — Warren Scott
