New fishing docks coming to Riverside Park ponds

Posted: Updated:

The City of Scottsbluff will be making things safer for people who like to fish at Riverside Park.
A new floating bridge and fishing docks are coming to the ponds at Riverside Park, located East of the Riverside Discovery Center Zoo.

The goal is to provide safer access to the water for fishing and wildlife viewing.

City Manager Rick Kuckkahn says the city has received complaints that water access is too steep and dangerous especially for people with mobility issues.
"It will make it more convenient and frankly it will make it a whole lot safer for everybody-not just people who aren't as mobile as some of us might be-but just safer and for kids," says Kuckkahn.  "You see little kids trying to get down there to fish."

Kuckkahn says the docks are expected to be installed sometime this spring.
