BLM announces extension of Bullfrog Day-Use Recreation Area infrastructure improvement project
Site will be temporarily inaccessible during construction of new retaining wall
LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. – The Bureau of Land Managementâ€™s (BLM) Lake Havasu Field Office is extending the construction project to replace a failing retaining wall at Bullfrog Day-Use Recreation Area. The original completion date was set for February but has been extended through May 2, 2019. During the construction phase, the site will be temporarily inaccessible for safety reasons.
The infrastructure improvement project is addressing 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.
Bullfrog Day Use Area is situated along the California-side of the lower Colorado River (Latitude/Longitude 34.238599 / -114.182752) within the Parker Strip Recreation Area. This site provides river access, a swimming beach, shaded picnic areas, a volleyball court, open green recreation space, and vault toilets. Visitors enjoy this river front site year-round. This day use area is best for enjoying the beautiful weather in the winter and river adventures during the summer. An on-site BLM volunteer site host can help visitors with any questions or concerns. – BLM
