Project Description

This project involves stabilizing, enhancing and re-establishing recreational activities available at Norriego Point. The restoration work involves the construction of several erosion control structures to dissipate wave energy and protect the dredged fill placed landward of the revetment. Two new embayments will provide additional swimming areas as well as more space for boats and kayaks to pull-in. Additionally, facilities will include a picnic pavilion with restrooms, showers, and drinking fountains; educational signage to encourage appreciation of this natural environment; a multi-use trail, bike racks, and vehicle parking along the access road adjacent to the park land.
