This week’s “local scene” items touch on updates for boating enthusiasts, an LGHS alumni fundraiser and info about an environmental gathering.
Boat dock project underway at Vasona Lake
The construction of a new boat dock at Vasona Lake County Park in Los Gatos is slated to begin this month.
The project includes the demolition of the existing boat dock and the construction of a new ADA dock and a new ADA kayak self-launching structure. A new ADA accessible route from the parking lot to the boat dock area will provide ease of access.
Work is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
