These simple actions on your part will reduce the time we need to spend cleaning and repairing areas of the park. This will allow us to focus our efforts on more critical and interesting endeavors.
We want you to know that we have taken many steps to making the park as energy efficient and ecologically friendly as possible. But it is an ever progressing effort. If you see any way in which we may be able to reduce operating expenses or provide a more environmentally responsible experience, please let us know.
