Obviously, you have not been there if you think there are no trees. Yes, there's a parking lot, but there are also picnic areas and a beautiful hiking trail that takes you on a one mile loop through the forest. The building's not an eyesore, it's a beautiful building, rich with educational opportunities about the construction of the bridge and the wildlife of the area. The new Skywalk is a sight to behold, and will take your breath away. It's a great place to spend the day with children, with plenty of opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. We also need to look at the amount of money that this is now bringing in to the area. The last time I was there I met people from all over the country who were vacationing here...and spending money in our shops, restaurants and lodging. Also of note, this park is FREE for anyone to use and enjoy. I for one am very proud of our State Park system and the many activities that they provide.

Clearly you havent been to the old beautiful park that it used to be? Shaded mysterious trail to a awe sight of a giant viaduct in middle of a forest, but now what forest? picnic areas ha they razed it for a open hot sky, used to be nice shaded, lots of trees but they cut it down changed the layout to build a huge giant building with few displays which doesnt really show the amazing history this park used to be, nothing orginal left but a new tourist trap, one mile trail whoppee there used to be nice trails all over, walk across vaiduct walk down a trail across creek back to parking lot. All those old growth trees, i grew up having pininics on tables underneath gone, they had to cut down a row of old growth that survived because it was blocking view of the viaduct from the visitor center. Money was even better coming in before and yeah whoo the new giant tourist trap brought some of it back but ehhh.

I've been going there for years. Yes, it was beautiful before, but it is even more beautiful now. The picnic area is completely shaded...maybe you should go and take a look instead of judging from your couch. The hiking trail under the viaduct is still there and is enjoyed by many. There is no way the money was coming in better before, because the park was always empty. It's beautiful, it's educational and a great benefit to our community. Much more so than a noisy fuel guzzling train the spews pollution into the air.

Your lame if you never experienced the thrill of riding the train across the viaduct. That was the main attraction to the park alongside the beautiful forested park shaded with alot of trees, was like a enchanted forest like experience going there. What your talking about is the old picnic area where they razed the parking area for it. Now we get there blinded by hot sun and heat then having to tell elderly folks with us to waddle a long ways over to the old area. I have been there for years and you dont sound educated with the evolution of the park but what the government feeds you that this so called new park is better than the old one. They could have build a nice vintage train station type museum instead of this giant monster waste of a space eyesore not filled with artifacts from history of bridge but made up fakes and silly toys that mock the leagcy of the viaduct. And please remove that eyesore of pathway blocking view of foundation of bridge and move it up. Sounds like you been on the couch watching hillary and government fed propaganda what is better for all of us. You need to get up see yellowstone thats the way all parks should be, parker dam, old vintage construction not eyesores that stick out just blends in helping nature pop out beautifully in awe inspiring legacy. Its better to just keep it simple a nice museum, keeping the orginal left of old park, find ways to improve bald spots where tornado was, not cut down old growth trees then whats the point of dcnr if no conservation?
