A new fishing dock has been installed at the fishing pond at Lions Centennial Park.
The t-shaped floating dock with handrails and an access ramp was a planned improvement of the Town of Ponoka for the pond, which is located at the north end of the park on Highway 2A.
The pond was recently restocked by Alberta Fish and Wildlife and the Ponoka Lions Club with approximately 600 trout.
“We’re excited that the new dock is installed and ready for families to begin enjoying the fishing season on the first day of summer,” said Andrew Jones, manager of Parks, Recreation and Facilities, in a press release.
A new water fountain is also expected to be installed in the middle of the pond over the coming days at Lions Centennial Park. The fountain will feature colourful lights that are activated each day at sunset.
The town reminds citizens that a fishing licence is required to fish at Lions Centennial Park pond.
