Pond Construction Impacts Parking Lot Walkways
Due to improvements on the front ponds, parts of the sidewalk will be closed through November 18. Guests using parking tiers 2 and 3 are advised to park on the west side of the lot and to head north to the sidewalk leading up to the visitor and education center. Different sections of the main spine walk will be closed throughout the week as construction progresses. Thank you for understanding.
