As first reported in April, Camp Long‘s historic lodge is getting some long-needed renovations in the first wave of Parks and Green Spaces Levy spending. The Parks Department issued a reminder this week that the lodge is about to close for that $1 million project – see the reminder here. We clarified the dates with Parks spokesperson Joelle Hammerstad, who says that January 1 is the first official day of the shutdown, and the closure is scheduled to last into June. The rest of the park, she stresses, remains open, and the announcement on the city website includes info on how to start making 2010 reservations for Camp Long facilities (beginning January 12) – registration is already under way for winter programs at Camp Long and the city’s other Environmental Learning Centers (more on that here).
