Vermont State Parks officials have announced that they will extend the operating period for Waterbury Center State Park this year to September 21.
“Waterbury Center State Park is one of the most popular state parks in Vermont,” said Parks Regional Manager Susan Bulmer. “The park is a popular destination for local visitors, and also draws visitors from across the state and region.”
The park is located on Waterbury Reservoir and offers panoramic mountain views, fishing and boating opportunities, picnicking and swimming.
“The local community has had a long-standing interest in keeping the park open past the traditional closing period,” said Bulmer. “Extending the season at the park will allow visitors to enjoy late summer recreational opportunities and the early fall foliage season.”
Park officials will evaluate park attendance and revenue to determine the feasibility of extending the park’s season in future years.
The park is located on Route 100 in Waterbury Center, and is open daily from 10 a.m. to sunset.
