Waterfront Walk "Turning Point" Park Project
The primary purpose of this project is to re-develop the "Turning Point" element at First Street and Wilson Avenue into a new park area. The project includes the construction of a portion of the missing Waterfront Trail allowing users to traverse alongside of Lake Superior, the construction of a fully ADA compliant restroom facility, the addition of a safe trail spur so users can safely access the highly used East Dock Park, and creates a new area for public outdoor recreation with the construction of a new park area featuring a donated fountain that will be located directly in the middle of the "Turning Point" area.
This project will be re-bid again in January 2018!
