The Village recently completed a $264,000 improvement project at the Park, which included construction of the boardwalk.

CENTRAL LAKE – After almost five years of paperwork and bureaucracy, the long-awaited improvement project in Central Lake’s Thurston Park on Intermediate Lake is finished.

“We still have five permanent docks to put in, probably next spring, that will go in west of the bridge on the other side of the beach,” said Central Lake Parks and Open Spaces Committee chairman Rob Tyler last week. “Those docks, one of which will be six-feet wide and American Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant, will attach to the new boardwalk we have over the wetland area there.

“But, other than those docks, and a fishing pier that we’d like to do at some point in the future, we’re done,” Tyler said.
