Lake Compounce Plans To Capitalize on Eased COVID Restrictions

The nation's longest continuously operating amusement park is hoping to capitalize on eased COVID restrictions as it approaches a milestone year. Lake Compounce in Bristol says it has pushed up its opening date three weeks, to May 8. The park is celebrating its 175th anniversary this year. Officials say some changes will be noticeable, like new lighting and new main gate area. Face coverings, social distancing and temperature checks will be a part of the experience, and Plexiglas has been installed in some areas. Currently, outdoor event venues in Connecticut can open to half capacity, up to 10,000 people.
