Contact Point State Park Plans Move Forward
August 1, 2016
PHOENIX - A new partnership has been formed for the development of Contact Point State Park in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. The new park is located south of the city on the shores of Lake Havasu and will feature a marina with launch ramp, docks and dry boat storage, as well as a restaurant with boat docking, beach and ramadas.
"Arizona's state parks are known for their beauty and accessibility," Governor Doug Ducey said. "Contact Point State Park is another impressive piece of our state's beautiful landscape that will be open for Arizonans and visitors to enjoy. It will provide even more amenities to Lake Havasu, driving more people to the region and creating economic prosperity. I'm excited this project is moving forward."
"It's great to be working with Lake Havasu City, Arizona State Representative Sonny Borrelli and Jim Komick," said Sue Black, Executive Director of Arizona State Parks. "Together, the vision of providing greater access and opportunity for the public to enjoy the beautiful environment at Contact Point State Park has become a reality."
"We are excited to finally see this project come to fruition, said Mayor Mark S. Nexsen of Lake Havasu City. "Thanks to the hard work and determination of Arizona State Parks Director, Sue Black, this project has become a reality."
"This is a clear example of what teamwork and building relationships can accomplish," said Sonny Borelli, Arizona State Representative.
Contact Point State Park will be developed in conjunction with a residential community featuring trails, an ecological/environmental center and a botanical garden. The developer, Komick SPE, was selected in July through the State of Arizona's competitive bidding process. Contact Point State Park is scheduled to open in 2020.
