4th of July

Due to safety concerns and ongoing construction at Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park, the city cannot host its annual Fourth of July activities in 2023, including the fireworks show.

The city needs the necessary time to safely and efficiently complete the North Water Walk and North Trestle Bridge projects to ensure the health and longevity the park. Both projects have made significant progress, and we are working toward expected openings of the water walk in late summer 2023 and the trestle bridge in early summer 2023.

We appreciate your patience as we work to keep this much-loved city park functional and well-maintained.
