Great Falls Park to Test "Pay on Exit" Process

McLean, Va.–On February 13th and 14th Great Falls Park will be piloting a “pay upon exit” process. This pilot is being conducted to help explore the feasibility of “pay on exit” and any repercussions it could have to the visitor experience and park operations. Often, Great Falls Park has a long entrance line. This pilot will help to inform management whether collecting fees on exit will minimize wait times for people trying to enter the park. The “pay on exit” is process used at shopping malls and other parking structures in the region.
