Acadia National Park re-opens visitor center

June 30, 2019

HULLS COVE, Maine (AP) — Acadia National Park has reopened its visitor center for the season in a Bar Harbor village.

The Bangor Daily News reports the facility in Hulls Cove has opened after months of renovations. Upgrades include new carpet, a family restroom and a separate entrance to the park store. Other additions include several oversized maps, new exhibits and a public display of pieces from the Acadia Artist-in-Residence program.

Still, the center has limited handicapped accessible parking.

Park officials say they have removed a small theater that screened an orientation film on the park.

Park entrance fees and contributions from the park store helped fund the renovations.
