Prescott plans to expand Goldwater Lake Park

Posted: Updated:

The Prescott City Council is giving the go-ahead to initial work on a project to more than double the size of Goldwater Lake Park.

The council's approval Tuesday clears the way for an engineering firm to design the expansion project for the popular recreation site.

Plans include adding ramadas, restrooms, parking spaces, picnic areas, a playground and a new water well and storage tank.

According to The Daily Courier, the total project is expected to cost about $800,000, including construction after the initial design and engineering phase.

Parks and Recreation Director Joe Boynes says the entire project should be finished by the end of August.

Boynes says the park is frequently used to capacity during summer months, with some people turned away because of a lack of parking spaces.
