Up­grades at Red Bay Na­tional His­toric Site to start this month

Northern Pen - - Community -

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.
