ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Officials say a maritime park and aquarium in New Jersey will undergo an approximately $3.6 million renovation as early as this fall. Atlantic City officials announced Wednesday that the renovations of Gardner’s Basin and the Atlantic City Aquarium are part of the city's efforts to make the park more of a tourist destination beyond the boardwalk and casinos. The park's renovations will include restroom renovations, parking improvements and electric vehicle charging stations. The aquarium, which hasn't undergone any major repairs in nearly 20 years, will have several improvements, including a new roof, replaced windows and a renovated gift shop.
