At Natural Bridge, lower prices help draw visitors

By Sutton Travis

It’s just about six months since Natural Bridge became a state park, and since then, visitation rates have risen significantly. Park officials attribute the gains in part to reduced admission prices — for adult tickets, it’s now just $8, compared to $20 when the park was privately owned. Officials hope to take advantage of the uptick in popularity by hosting several events in the park, including a Kids Fishing Day at Cedar Creek on April 1.
