Approximately 470 linear feet of 6’ wide boardwalk that is four feet off shore. With a 40’ pier and 36x36’ fishing platform in twenty feet of water.

Design Challenge

Carver Lake Park and Beach

This project began as a shoreline restoration project. It involved the removal of a deteriorating shoreline boardwalk. In its place, a new boardwalk was put that provided residents with a nature trail as well as a location for fishing from the trail without blocking the trail. These efforts helped to clean up the park and make it more visitor friendly and more fishing friendly.

Design Solution

Carver Lake Park and Beach

This new boardwalk rests in the water rather than on the shore. The boardwalk follows the contour of the shore and does not disrupt the natural water flow or the shoreline. There is an addition of a 45- foot fishing pier that extends to water depths of 25 feet.
