Acacia Recreation Site Improvements
This project, performed by West Point Contractors, Inc. for the Forest Service, consisted of the demolition and reconstruction of the Acacia Recreation Area located at Canyon Lake, AZ. The work included removing the concrete tables, pedestal grills and footings, existing ramadas, day use pads, existing guard rail and wooden bollards. WPC installed day use pads with a concrete picnic table, pedestal grills, and 16’x24’ concrete use pads for each unit location. We also installed new ramadas, accessible concrete picnic tables and accessible pedestal grills. We provided better public access by installing a stabilized decomposed granite use pads along with decomposed granite trails, concrete sidewalk and ADA ramps. Accessibility to toilet buildings in the campground were improved via remodel of the interior of the restroom located in the group area.
