Edmond Exploring New Recreation Development at Arcadia Lake

Planning New Water Recreation Options for Edmond, OK

A joint meeting was held recently between the Edmond Fish and Game Commission and the Edmond City Council to discuss development opportunities for nearby Arcadia Lake.

Both the commission and a separate ad hoc committee of city officials have been working the last several months to find new ways of expanding the development and amenities at Arcadia Lake. The city is preparing to send out a second request for proposals nationwide to see if it can find a private partner willing to build a marina and possibly a restaurant and other amenities to further develop the lake. Other plans in the works are opening a road in to the lake from 33rd Street and beginning to develop the park land on that side of the lake.

Hopefully, they will consider adding canoe and kayak rental on the lake or even consider a full water park bid from REP or a similar contractor.
