Phoenix – The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors approved design and construction of a new dock and boathouses at Scorpion Bay Marina within Lake Pleasant Regional Park. This addition will be for the exclusive use of the Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department, Sheriff’s Office, and Arizona Game and Fish Department as they manage the lake and ensure public safety.

“Lake Pleasant and the park are incredible public assets that see thousands of visitors every year,” said Supervisor Clint Hickman, District 4. “As the popularity of the park increases, we have to make sure we have the facilities for the people who keep everyone safe on the lake.”

Scorpion Bay Holdings is partnering with Parks and Recreation to design and build the new docks and boathouses on the southwest corner of the marina. The project will include open, covered and enclosed slips as well as a multi-use building. The dock will be attached to the existing marina, adding much-needed space for public safety and management services.

The construction cost is up to $898,700 and will be funded jointly by Maricopa County and Arizona Game and Fish Department. The county will own the dock while Scorpion Bay maintains the facility.

“I am proud of Maricopa County’s ability to effectively work with other levels of government and utilize public-private partnerships to solve a problem,” said Chairman Bill Gates, Supervisor, District 3. “This project is yet another example of what can be accomplished when entities collaborate.”

A date has not been set for starting construction.
