The town of Culver will soon be sporting a new fishing pier at their park that will not only be handicap-accessible but will also offer a great view of the lake and a wonderful place to sit, relax, and even do some fishing. Town Manager David Schoeff explained that the town has always had a fishing pier at that location, but because of its age, the town decided it was time to buy a new one.

The new pier, according to Schoeff, is going to be a stationary pier for a distance from the bank, but after a certain point it will become a floating pier. Schoeff said he’s excited to show off the new pier once it is installed sometime toward the middle of this month.

The pier will extend about 140 feet from the shore and will form a backwards L-shape with a section cutting off to the left for about 50 feet. The rails will be adjustable, allowing the railing to be lowered for visitors in wheelchairs to permit them to fish comfortable.

Schoeff said the cost of the pier came out to roughly $44,000 from the park department’s budget, and he expects the pier should require virtually no maintenance. He said the town has been planning this pier for well over a year, and they are excited for the ribbon-cutting dedication ceremony planned for Memorial Day.
