Bass River Public Access Facility, Wilbur Park

Bass River waterfront park in Yarmouth was in need of redevelopment. The town received many complaints about the washed-out boat ramp, and the drainage in the parking lot led directly into the river. Coastal Engineering Co. worked with Dept. of Fish & Game Office of Fishing and Boating Access on this state-funded project to include expansion of the boat ramp with a new accompanying floating dock system running parallel to the ramp, handicapped accessible fishing pier, new concrete bulkhead with a stone revetment facing, overlay paving and new layout for existing parking lot, and new storm drainage system and landscaping. The town has had very positive public response, with many visitors stopping by for fishing, launching a boat or just relaxing on a bench or narrow beach.
