Presque Isle to see improvements this summer

Local News

Presque Isle is also getting ready for the busy holiday weekend, but renovations to the Beach 8 area of the park will not be ready until later.

Final sewer and landscaping work is still ongoing on the project that will see a new bathhouse and concessions area.  The former bathhouse was one of the oldest in the park and showing wear.  Another part of the plan will eventually build a two-mile promenade that will allow walkers and bikers direct access to the beachfront.

Matt Greene, Manager of Presque Isle State Park, says, “Right now, we can go from the west side of [Beach] 8 to the east side of 7.  It will be a new feature so we’re really excited about those upgrades and renovations that we have going”.

Greene hopes to have the new Beach 8 features open to the public by mid-June.
