The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources reports that Weekday closures at Grand Portage State Park have ended.
The park on the Canadian border, which features views of Minnesota’s highest waterfall,is now open daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The park was closed on weekdays the past few weeks as crews worked on a new visitor center near the trail to the falls.
The new, 5,800-square-foot visitor center, which also will serve as a state highway rest area, is slated to open in June 2010.
Occasional temporary park closures may be necessary, though the DNR plans to make every attempt to keep the park open.
