Construction update & timelines

Lake construction is well underway. The lake bed was completed in 2019 and we aim to complete the remaining perimeter wall and lake infrastructure in 2020.

Maintenance building construction began in the spring of 2021. Check our Instagram for regular construction updates.

When will the lake be ready for use?

We began filling the lake in February 2021 at a slow rate and continue to fill it during off-peak hours at an slightly higher flow rate. We anticipate that the lake will be ready for winter use in 2021. We know you are eager for the lake and beach amenities, so we are working diligently to complete these projects.
