Upgrades at Red Bay National Historic Site to start this month
Work to rejuvenate the Red Bay National Historic Site is not expected to have a big impact on the overall visitor experience at the attraction this summer, according to Parks Canada.
The upgrades, which will begin in late June, will see the visitor orientation centre and the visitor interpretation centre at the UNESCO World Heritage site merged into one building.
Parks Canada says this will reduce the environmental footprint and allow for better presentation.
The visitor orientation centre will be closed during construction, however, and all visitor services will be provided at the visitor interpretation centre.
The Chalupa exhibit will also be temporarily closed. Parks Canada says signs will be installed to direct people to the appropriate visitor services.
The project is scheduled to be completed in time for the 2019 visitor season.
