Alan Bible Visitor Center
The Alan Bible Visitor Center Reopens
Under renovation since Fall 2010, the Alan Bible Visitor Center has reopened this winter and is better than ever!
The Alan Bible Visitor Center, built in 1966 has been brought into the 21st century while preserving its historic elements. Improvements include bringing its many systems up to code, improving accessibility throughout the building and making it more climate friendly by conserving and producing energy.
Those driving by the visitor center site will notice the new solar panel array on the property. These nine panels and other improvements will earn the Alan Bible Visitor Center a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) silver rating, a unique award for a historic building.
Other changes are more subtle; a new park film is being produced, the improved bookstore carries many new educational and nature gift items and the cactus garden will have improved sidewalks and masonry walls.
The Visitor Center is open 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m Wednesday through Sunday. Closed Monday and Tuesday. Please call 702-293-8990 for more information.
