2027

Grant County PUD is set to celebrate the completion of the on-island Riverbend Park boat launch and parking area. To mark the completion of construction at the site, Grant PUD is hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony and family friendly party for all to enjoy. The free event will take place on Saturday, June 2nd beginning at 11:30 a.m. at Crescent Bar.

The final touches of the on-island Riverbend Park boat launch and parking area wrapped up the end of last week. Planning for the overhaul began in 2010 and work started in 2014. Finishing this project marked the end of the major construction overhaul at the recreation site. The PUD will be offering Crescent Bar boat tours, free food samples and a presentation from renowned geologist, Nick Zenter of Central Washington University.

Two final projects, the renovation of the on-island water system and wastewater-treatment plant, will conclude throughout the year. Completion of these projects will put the final stamp on the $35 million renovation of this popular recreation area.
