Mather Lodge has a grand new entrance.

Mather Lodge at Petit Jean State Park near Morrilton, which closed in 2011 to undergo renovations, is now open.

The renovations included adding restrooms, replacing the swimming pool and dining room, expanding the kitchen, and updating 24 guest rooms, the lobby, and meeting room in the same 1930s-era Adirondack-style park architecture as the original structure.

The park cabins remained open during the last year's construction.
