The Lakeside Park Improvement Project Phase 1A will kick off just after the first of the new year. The City of Marble Falls has contracted with Myers Concrete Construction to improve Lakeside Park, the Johnson Park Boat Ramp, and the Lakeshore Boat Ramp. Construction will begin January 2, 2019 and continue into the summer.
Lakeside Park, with the exception of the Lakeside Pavilion, will be completely closed to use until the Project is completed. Lakeside Park improvements will include a sandy beach, trails and sidewalks, on-street parking, Lakeside Pavilion parking, new Walkway of Lights power circuits, and street lamp lighting. In addition, new water, sewer, and reuse water lines will be installed, along with underground electrical and communications services.
The Lakeside Pavilion will remain open with some inconveniences. The roadways and parking areas will be in various stages of construction. While the roadways and parking areas may be gravel at times, every effort will be made to keep the Lakeside Pavilion accessible and minimize the impact.
Johnson Park will remain open for use, while the Johnson Park Boat Ramp may be closed intermittently during construction. Improvements will include a redesigned driveway and parking; thereby creating efficiencies in traffic flow and parking.
The Hays Addition Boat Ramp will be closed during construction. Improvements will include a completely new two-lane ramp with raised island, 6 full-length trailer parking spaces, and 4 single vehicle parking spaces. The entry is aligned with Trinity Street to maximize safety; and parking areas are sunken below grade to minimize noise and light disturbance and to preserve the Lake and hill vistas.
Construction activity at these locations may create some short-term inconveniences; however, will result in long-term improvements of the parks and the Lake Marble Falls shoreline as outlined in various City planning documents.

Project completion is scheduled for late Summer 2019.
