Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park
Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park will be increasing access to park grounds and facilities.
· Beginning August 28, the park will reopen access to the Visitor Center (including the museum), America’s National Parks bookstore/gift shop, and park pass purchases in the Visitor Center.
· Beginning August 31, the park will reopen access to the mountain road and the mountain road parking lot for vehicular traffic, to include bicycles.
Park patrons entering the Visitor Center will be encouraged to exercise social distancing, follow the designated traffic flow and wear masks in addition to following other Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.
The mountain road gate will open at 8:00 a.m. and close at 7:00 p.m. Monday – Friday to allow for vehicular traffic (which includes bicycles). No shuttle service will be in operation at this time due to social distancing issues inside the shuttle bus.
The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners continues to be paramount. At Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, our operational approach continues to be centered on examining each facility function and service to ensure those operations comply with current public health guidance and are regularly monitored. We continue to work closely with the NPS Office of Public Health using CDC guidance to ensure public areas and workspaces are safe and clean.
A safe and enjoyable park experience begins at home. The NPS encourages visitors to plan their visit by checking the park’s website and social media for current conditions and travel tips. The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We ask the public to be our partner in recreating responsibly, by following CDC and state and local guidance, social distancing, and wearing a face covering when social distance cannot be maintained.
Details and updates on park operations will continue to be posted on our website at www.nps.gov/kemo and social media channels. Updates about NPS operations will be posted on www.nps.gov/coronavirus.
