Mastodon State Historic Site adds ADA amenities

(Imperial) The Mastodon State Historic Site in Imperial will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday for their newly constructed ADA-compliant parking spaces and museum entrance ramp. Ken Smith is the Mastodon Park Superintendent. He says they began the work back in March.

Smith says the ramp to the museum allows for much better access for those using walkers or in wheelchairs.

Smith says the State Parks Director will be there for the ribbon-cutting ceremony and they want to recognize several people who put in the work and the time to get the project completed.

Smith says the park has been busy of late as visitors have been wanting to view the fall colors and take advantage of the hiking trails. The ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the renovations at the Mastodon State Historic Site will be held Tuesday morning at 11. The Mastodon State Historic Site grounds are open from 8 AM until a half hour after sunset year-round. The museum is open from 9 AM until 4:30 PM from Wednesdays to Saturdays and open from Noon to 4:30 on Sundays.
