The City received grant funding to repair and improve pedestrian access on the Atascadero Lake Park Pier and adjacent sidewalk. Atascadero Lake Park is a popular destination for residents and visitors who enjoy many of the park’s amenities and the Charles Paddock Zoo. To financially assist with the cost of the project, the City was awarded approximately $178,000 in grant funding as part of Proposition 68 (California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access for All Act). Grant funding will be used to assist with the replacement of the pier railing, deck boards, concrete sidewalk and curb, and install a new ADA compliant ramp from the asphalt pathway behind the upper restrooms to the new sidewalk near the boathouse entrance. Additional improvements including replacing the chain link fencing with matching pier railing between the pier and old wading pool. The project is part of additional efforts to improve park facilities as part of the City Council’s key priorities identified in the City’s 2023-25 Budget.
