Water bottle filling stations - Cape Cod National Seashore has made a commitment to decrease its greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by the year 2020. When you refill a reusable water bottle,you decrease the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the production, filling, packaging and transport of disposable water containers.

Designated water bottle filling stations have been installed in high public use areas of the park, making it easy to refill your water bottle.

Filling stations are located:

- Inside Salt Pond Visitor Center

- Inside Province Lands Visitor Center

- Outside Herring Cove Beach Bathhouse

Coming Soon:

- Outside Salt Pond Visitor Center Restroom Building

- Outside Coast Guard Beach Bathhouse

- Inside Highland Light Keeper's House bookstore

In just two seasons, our Province Lands Visitor Center filling station helped eliminate over 35,000 disposable plastic bottle waste! Help us make a difference, and please refill your water bottle.
