LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Lake County Redevelopment Agency officials have announced the completion of the fishing pier at Alpine Park in Lucerne.


The pier, which is the first phase of the Third Avenue Plaza Project, is open to the public from now until the start of the second phase of the project, which is slated for late summer.

 

The newly constructed fishing pier extends 180 feet out into Clear Lake, offering residents and visitors stunning views of the vastness of Clear Lake and the backdrop of Mount Konocti while providing anglers with impressive overwater access.

 

The pier is constructed of steel and concrete with a steel railing with stainless steel cable detail.


At the end of walkway is a large gazebo with an Alpine-styled roofline that sits atop a 60-foot-by-40-foot platform.


A number of benches are set along the platform, and several tables are placed beneath the shade of the gazebo, which creates a great spot for picnics. The park is open from dawn to dusk.

 

Major funding for the fishing pier project has been provided by a grant from the Wildlife Conservation Board of the California Department of Fish and Game, with additional funding provided by the Lake County Redevelopment Agency.

 

Formed in 1999, the Lake County Redevelopment Agency works to eliminate blight in communities within the Northshore Redevelopment Project Area, which includes parts of Upper Lake, Nice, Lucerne, Glenhaven, and Clearlake Oaks.

 

For more information about the project, contact the Lake County Redevelopment Agency at 707-263-2580 or visit www.co.lake.ca.us/redevelopment.
