More parking lot progress.

The spaces are now angled and lanes are one way. Only a portion of the paid lot has lines painted so far.

Glad to see this!  As tight as that parking lot was, it was a nightmare with a larger vehicle getting in and out of those spots, sometimes.

Thanks for the pics/update.

Another parking update.

Clearing has been done along the westbound lanes of 76.

More paving and striping has been completed. Also, there are now 8 pay booths, but they are still just using the first set.

The power outlets that were added along the lake silver fence near the new foundations have been painted to match the fence color.

This is the view of the area where a tree blew over. I would expect the fencing to be extended up now that the hvac units are clearly visible from the square.

Sorry if this has been answered before, but for anyone who has visited the park this year, with all the new parking stuff going on, has the free parking allotment shrunk/stayed the same/grown? How about the preferred parking - grown/stayed the same?

Thanks!

The whole project is adding spaces overall. I believe they have slightly expanded paid parking, it also appears to be designed with some flexibility to expand or shrink paid parking on a daily basis. With work still in progress Iím not sure but I think they have either slightly less or about the same number of useable parking spots, but as work progresses they will have added a significant amount of spots.

Not sure if anybody else has noticed, but at the bottom of Wildfire there seem to be new retaining walls and gravel put down. Iíll have to get a picture next time, but Iíd assume itís just to make maintenance easier since itíll be level ground at certain places

REJOICE is back!

Now we know for sure what the foundations and outlets were added for.

New foundations in Lake Silver. Could these be for the return of REJOICE? They seem to be too spaced out for anything structural like a wider walkway so Iím am guessing decorative.

When looking at old photos on midwestinfoguide, the foundations are not there. Below is a cropped version of this photo: https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-sNaUlfFoAtw/XgAFpv5brTI/AAAAAAAA3gI/XJ3rYbiEuVYdLlL3vaJ8FGZcKZV3YK1DgCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/IMG_7625.JPG
The foundations are not in the photo.

They have now added power outlets on the fence by the pillar foundations. The foundations are under water now, assuming that they are at a level to be above water in the winter. This could also explain why rust was seen on them.
I also attached my original photo to show that the outlets are new.

Awesome that they brought the REJOICE sign back. Had a feeling that was coming after all our discussions on those lake footers. They really do listen to their guests, even though there are a million conflicting voices.
