NAVAJO CITY, N.M. (AP) - The visitor center at Navajo Lake State Park is reopening with renovations and additions including new heating and lighting.

New Mexico State Parks said on Friday that it held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the changes.

Navajo Lake is the second-largest lake in New Mexico and has campgrounds, marinas and boat docks. It’s in the northern part of the state near the border with Colorado.

The renovated visitor’s center includes new heating, air conditioning, lighting and updated electrical and IT systems. The building is designed to be more energy efficient.

Construction began in September 2015 and was completed this October. It cost about $1.2 million, half of which was provided by a grant from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and others.
