Noble Park Lake Bank Stabilization Project Begins Monday, July 7

The City Commission awarded YEC a $192,414 contract for the project on June 3.

Parks Services Director Mark Thompson says, “The bank, especially at the southeastern end of the lake, has been deteriorating for years due to lake fluctuations and the movement of the ducks and geese in and out of the water. This project will stabilize the bank, improve the accessibility of the fishing piers, level the sidewalks, and make the park more attractive.”

The project consists of using metal sheet piling to create a retaining wall to stabilize the erosion on 665 linear feet of the southeastern side of the Noble Park Lake. The project also includes earthwork, drainage, seeding and the construction of new sidewalks.

During the construction, the park will remain open. However, please watch for trucks and crews. The southeastern parking lot adjacent to the lake will be used as a staging area for the construction crews and will not be available for the public’s use. The contractor has 120 days to complete the project.

Funds to stabilize additional bank sections will be proposed for upcoming fiscal year budgets. Also the addition of a water aeration feature in the southern end of the lake will occur in the future.

Thompson adds, “An Eagle Scout has approached the Parks Department regarding the rehabilitation of the duck house as a scout project. The duck house currently is in storage. Once it is rehabilitated, it will be placed on a floating structure later this year.”

In addition to this project, recently the City of Paducah reinvested in Noble Park through the Noble Park Pool rehabilitation project and the roadway and parking lot project which improved drainage features and traffic flow and safety near the pool house and amphitheater.
