Seneca’s National Park is getting a $3 million upgrade with the creation of a new visitor centre and more visitor amenities, including an amphitheatre, amphitheater stage and outdoor bar.
The centre will be located in the centre of the park at The Junction.
Seneca National Park Director John Williams said the centre will have a new look and feel to it.
“It’s an amphitour-style venue, it’s going to be a small bar and we’re going to have a restaurant,” he said.
“We’re also going to add in some entertainment, more activities and events that we haven’t had in the past.”
He said the park would continue to focus on the health and safety of visitors.
“It’s a really big deal,” he told the ABC.
Mr Williams said while the park was experiencing a boom in visitors, the park had been hit hard by bushfires, including last month’s fires in the area, and was experiencing more than 50 centimetres of rain in the last three months.
The park has experienced a surge in visitor numbers with more than 1,000 people visiting the park last year.
Mr Jones said while people loved the new centre and the amphitheaters and bars, he was not surprised it would be a hit with visitors.
“When you have a facility like that you can really draw people into the park,” he added.
“You can have a lot of fun and you can do a lot more in a short period of time.”
Mr Jones told ABC News the park needed a new centre for the next 10 years.
“The park is in very poor shape right now, so it’s a big concern for us,” he explained.
The Seneca national park will have an amphitable centre, outdoor bar and dining area, including a new outdoor bar, as well as a visitor centre, amphitheatres and a dining area.
It will also have a recreation area and a restaurant.
A visitor centre will also be built at the park’s visitor centre.
The new centre will include a full bar, a cafe and a visitor lounge.
Mr Wilson said while he was pleased to see the centre had been created, he wasn’t expecting much in terms of improvements.
“There are a lot, I would say, that we’ll need to continue to upgrade to really get this place back to where it needs to be,” he suggested.
The Park Service will oversee the construction and maintain the park for the park, with the Federal Government providing the funding.
The National Parks and Wildlife Service will work with the park to ensure that the centre meets the park service’s requirements.
Senecans will also continue to enjoy the natural beauty of the region and will be able to enjoy Seneca Falls.
