“This system provides a fundamentally different way for visitors to see and enjoy the park and allows us to meet our objectives of protecting the park’s resources while providing a quality visitor experience. It also marks the culmination of an ongoing partnership between the park, the Town of Springdale, including the private business community, and our Congressional delegation.”
