Public Invited to Submit Comments on Redevelopment of Upper Cattail Cove State Park

August 11, 2017

PHOENIX – Following a public meeting held Thursday, August 10, Arizona State Parks and Trails has opened a survey to gather additional public comment on a master plan for the redevelopment of Upper Cattail Cove State Park at Lake Havasu along the Colorado River. 

This portion on the north end of Cattail Cove State Park will be redeveloped to add amenities, camping space and recreation opportunities for visitors to the state park and the Lake Havasu area. The public is invited to review the preliminary plans for the park and provide feedback at the upcoming open house. The comments will be use to inform the direction of the master plan before it is finalized later this year.

The presentation and display boards are available for review, and the survey will be open until Friday, August 18, 2017.
