Project Summary

The Discovery Center is starting a multi-phase project to transform an old city-owned coal dock into a recreational amenity. This project will greatly enhance public fishing access by creating universally accessible parking and pedestrian access to the east wall of the pier where sheeting piling will be modified to withstand higher water levels and railing with rod holders will be installed. All features will be designed and constructed using universal access principles.
