Subj: Lower Merion Township: Boat Ramp at Flat Rock Park Temporarily Closed
Boat Ramp at Flat Rock Park Temporarily Closed
Posted Date: 9/11/2009 1:45 PM
The Lower Merion Township Parks and Recreation Department has announced the temporary closure of the Flat Rock Park Boat Ramp due to an obstruction at its entrance.
Crews are working to clear the entryway and notification will be made when the ramp is reopened.
So I asked a friend in Gladwyne what was up and this is what I was told:
they are looking for the girl that is missing and had Philadelphia divers come in to look for a car that might have something to do with her. They found 5 to 7 cars on the bottom off the Flatrock ramp.
So Flatrock Park is problematic to me, always has been. Always something funky going on. And now they don't find the poor missing woman but they do find that some jerks are dumping cars? I hope they look for old V.I.N. plates and fine the people if they can find them. Why can't Lower Merion keep a better handle on Flatrock Park? It's yet another reason to feel sorry for the River Roaders.

LOWER MERION TWP., Pa. - September 11, 2009 (WPVI) -- Search crews combed the Schuylkill River looking for a car belonging to a missing woman.
A dive team from Philadelphia examined several cars found submerged near a boat launch along the Schuylkill River.
They wanted to know if any of them belong to 29-year-old Toni Lee Sharpless, a Chester County woman who has been missing for nearly three weeks.
