The path around the Lake will be blocked just past the gift shop and after the Krishna Falls so it will not be possible to circumnavigate the Lake during the renovation.  The gift shop will remain open during construction. Access to the Lake can be made via the Visitor Center entrance. The Krishna Falls should be accessible (most of the time) by the approach past the House Boat.

  • Quiet conversation
  • Silence cellphones
  • ADA service dogs only
