A new proposal from the National Park Service would expand the entry fees at one of the most popular parks in our region: The Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park. The plan would boost the charge for parking at Great Falls, and explore ways to charge people who use the tow path along its many other entry points. The move is part of a nation-wide exploration of how to raise park fees to help offset shrinking federal budget contributions to the national park system.
