The Lubbock City Council is putting plans into action for the Canyon Lakes Project, which is now known as the Jim Bertram Lake System.
The Council recently approved a contract with Parkhill, Smith and Cooper, Inc. for the construction of Fiesta Plaza. It is a festival area which will include performance areas, a picnic area, boat dock and fishing pier. The master plan for the system includes a regional park with a lake with bridges.
The $1 million dollar project is funded in part by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and a 1999 Bond Election approved by Lubbock citizens.
Construction is estimated to be completed by December 31, 2004.
