New $10 Million Visitors Center Opens at Dam
BRANSON, Mo. (AP) -- Visitors to Table Rock Lake have a gleaming new visitor center to enjoy.
The $10 million Dewey Short Visitor Center at Table Rock Dam will open Friday.
The Springfield News-Leader reports (http://sgfnow.co/Igxfr3 ) that with 15,000 square feet, the center is almost twice the size of the previous visitor center.
The center has an observation deck that provides views of the Table Rock Lake and Lake Taneycomo. It includes 4,000 square feet of exhibit space, a native garden, a theater and several interactive stations.
Outside the center, visitors can hike a 2.2-mile paved trail or enjoy picnic areas.
