Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park – Boat Launch Parking Area
Attention boaters using the boat launch area, from February 20, 2014 to approximately March 31, 2014, a contractor will be storing 52 new HDPE booms in the center aisles of the boat launch parking lot. A temporary fence will be set up around the booms and related equipment. These new booms will be replacing the 30 year old log booms on the north side of the North Water Walk, extending to the north boundary of Coulon Park.
Work will consist of removing the log booms and replacing them with HDPE booms, along with a small orange buoy between booms, and installing new galvanized hardware connections. The new booms will match the black HDPE booms protecting the South Water Walk, providing a more visible barrier and better near shore calming. If you have any questions, please contact Todd Black (email@example.com, 425-430-6571).
