Roseland Wake Park pursues suit against Department of Health

The Roseland Wake Park has filed a lawsuit against the state Department of Health following the agency’s decision to reclassify an attraction at the Canandaigua-based park that would require more lifeguards to be on hand. The outcome of this lawsuit is being explored while medical personnel investigate what caused the death of a 22-year-old college student who fell off another attraction at Roseland Wake Park and later died at Strong Memorial Hospital of a brain bleed.

In the lawsuit, filed Aug. 1 by David Clements, Roseland Wake Park’s managing member, the Department of Health ordered that the Wake Park’s AquaGlide attraction be classified as a bathing beach. The AquaGlide consists of an inflatable jungle gym, obstacle course and climbing center all based on water, the papers state.
