BLM: Bullfrog Day Use Area will close for repairs
PARKER —The Bureau of Land Management’s Lake Havasu Field Office will begin a four-month construction project this month to replace a failing retaining wall at Bullfrog Day Use Recreation Area. Construction is scheduled to begin on Oct. 17 and finish in February.
BLM officials say the infrastructure improvement project will address structural concerns with the current retaining wall, which was built in 1968 and is failing. The new retaining wall will provide improved soil stabilization, safety, and beach and river access at the site.
“Improvements like these are part of an on-going effort to modernize our infrastructure and enhance recreational opportunities along the river,” said Jason West, Lake Havasu Field Manager. “We appreciate the public’s patience while we undergo this big project that will ultimately create a safer and improved beach recreation experience for visitors.”
Bullfrog Day Use Area is situated along the California side of the lower Colorado River within the Parker Strip Recreation Area. The site provides river access, a swimming beach, shaded picnic areas and restroom facilities. The site is managed by the BLM Arizona Lake Havasu Field Office.
