Spray park in Pottstown shut down over health concerns

POTTSTOWN, Pa. - A spray park in Pottstown is closed over concerns about hand, foot and mouth disease.

A spokesperson for Montgomery County says eight children have contracted the disease in the Pottstown area.

Officials say most, if not all of the kids were at the Fountain of Youth Spray Park in Memorial Park over the past 10 days.

Officials are still trying to figure out if the spray park is the source of the disease.

There's no word on when the park will reopen.
