Visitor Center Parking Improvements and Pavilion Project
Updated April 24, 2014
The main entrance to the Visitor Center will be closed Thursday, April 24 - Friday, April 25 for sidewalk repairs. Please use the upper entrance, located on the backside of the Visitor Center. Follow the signs from the main parking lot around the building. Our Visitor Center staff are available to assist with directions if needed, please call 610-783-1099.

Beginning April 22, a two-week parking project will commence in front of the main Visitor Center entrance creating eight new ADA compliant parking spaces. Project dates are weather dependent and updates will be posted frequently. Please be mindful of construction vehicles in the Visitor Center area.
During this two-week construction period:
  • The passenger drop-off area in front of the Visitor Center will be periodically closed.
  • The walkway and main entrance to the Visitor Center will be closed for three to four days to allow for sidewalk maintenance. Visitors should use the Visitor Center's upper doors and take the stairs or the elevator to the first floor. Accessible parking is available in the upper parking lot.
  • Contractors will be constructing a new entrance to the upper parking lot in its south-west corner. There will be a minimal impact to parking availability during this time.
Pavilion Project
Following the completion of the new ADA parking in front of the Visitor Center, the Education Pavilion project will begin in the Visitor Center upper parking lot. The pavilion will be located in the first parking bay adjacent to the Visitor Center upper entrance. This project will last several weeks, resulting in a new educational pavilion and additional green space.
