Bays Final Logo Brown

Bays Mountain Park & Planetarium’s Nature Center will be closed to the public on Monday, August 13 and Tuesday, August 14, while new carpet installation takes place.  Public programs such as the planetarium show, nature program, and barge ride will also be canceled during this time.  Normal operations are expected to resume Wednesday, August 15.

Closing the Nature Center will allow installers to focus exclusively on the gift shop and lobby area these two days. Workspace Interiors will be the contractor performing this work for the City of Kingsport.  The new carpet installation is part of the City’s commitment to providing much needed updates and improvements to the Park in an effort to enhance the visitor experience and maintain Bays Mountain Park & Planetarium’s status as a valued regional destination serving both locals and tourists alike.
