West Lake to close for part of the summer; park facilities to remain open

A local summer fun spot is undergoing major renovations soon.

DAVENPORT, Iowa -- The lake at West Lake Park will be closed for renovations for part of the 2019 summer season.

Work crews at the lakefront facility will be draining the lake starting Monday, July 15th. Restoration work will begin at this time, but the facility will remain open to the public.

According to a notice from the Scott County Conservation Board, the renovation project aims to restore the shoreline, construct multiple ponds and fishing areas, and restock the lake's population of game fish.

West Lake Park facilities will remain open to the public.
