Mammoth Cave National Park is making plans for the future in hopes of better serving the roughly half-a-million yearly visitors to the natural attraction in south central Kentucky.
The park has made a number of improvements within the past year, including a renovation of the lodge, upgrades to concession areas, a new pedestrian bridge, and a new handicap-accessible trail. The national park has also installed solar panels to power charging stations for electric cars in the visitor parking lot.
Park Superintendent Barclay Trimble spoke to members of the Bowling Green Noon Rotary Club on Wednesday. In addition to the improvements already made, he said the park is working on a cave management plan that will guide how the attraction operates in future decades.
