Some big improvement projects are underway!

Federal funding and park fees are paying for upgrades in Acadia National Park. The improvements are aimed at curbing road and parking congestion as well as improve visitor comfort and safety.

The projects include:

  • Sun and rain shelters, a pavilion and a barn for carriages at the Wildwood Stables.
  • A redesigned parking lot at Jordan Pond House. It should add 100 more parking spaces.
  • Nine Island Explorer bus shelters will go up along some more congested areas of the park. The areas include: Acadia Mountain, Bubble Pond, Bubble Rock, Parkman Mountain, Sand Beach, Thunder Hole, Echo Lake, Cadillac Mountain’s North Ridge Trail and Visitor Center.

The projects at Wildwood Stables has a price tag of $400,000. It’s being paid for by park fees and should be done by May 24. The parking project at the Jordan Pond House is being paid for by federal funding and should be done by June 23. Also on the government’s tab is the bus stops, priced at $1.2 million. That project is to be completed by Friday.
