Polk County Press Release - April 21st, 2022
Press Release
The construction for the Buena Vista Park & Boat Launch will be starting in May 2022. The park and boat launch will be closed from 5/23/2022 - 9/30/2022 with no option to put in or pull out any motorized or non-motorized water crafts.
Polk County was awarded approximately $1.6 million in grants to fund this project. The work being completed includes repairs to the lower parking area, realignment of the boat launch, the addition of a second bathroom facility, and the addition of a floating dock.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, however, we are very excited to see these much needed repairs and updates coming to the Buena Vista Park.

It's pretty major. They bought some land next to the park to expand and the whole ramp is going to be reconfigured.

@C_Run We've talked about fishing from the freeway to Buena Vista. I guess we'll have to put it off another year. That would make about what? 10 years we've put it off? LOL
