    The park auditorium is undergoing major rehabilitation and can only accommodate 15 persons watching the film at once. We play it every half hour, or on an as needed basis. Completion date; spring 2015. Everything else is open, as usual, at the park.

Pets

Pets are allowed in the park but must be on a leash at all times. Leashes must not be over six (6) feet long. In order to avert health risks and inappropriate contact between pets and visitors, pets are not admitted in park buildings. Please do not leave pets unattended. Service animals may accompany persons with disabilities in all areas of our park, including park buildings.

Pet owners are responsible for removing pet excrement from parking areas, picnic areas, trail surfaces, and other areas of heavy public use in the park to provide an enjoyable and safe visit for visitors.

For your pet's health and safety be aware that summer heat may be deadly to pets if left unattended in your vehicle.
