Construction project set to start at Ash Hollow State Historical Park

Ash Hollow State Historical Park will have limited access starting in mid-December to allow for park improvements focused on improving accessibility.

Both the public bathroom and the sidewalk entrance to the visitor center will be renovated to meet wheelchair accessibility requirements.

During construction, no vehicle or foot access will be permitted to the visitor center or parking area. Some activities at the park also may be interrupted during construction.

Access to the rest of the park will remain open daily from sunrise to sunset, including the primitive restrooms. A valid park entry permit is required to be on Ash Hollow State Historical Park grounds and is available at the iron ranger at the entrance of the Garden County park.

Construction is expected to be completed by early spring.

Questions may be directed to the Lincoln Game and Parks office at 402-471-0641 or to park superintendent Tamara Cooper at 308-778-5651.

Ash Hollow State Historical Park is located five miles (8.0 km) south of Lewellen in Garden CountyNebraska.
