Grant PUD to hold open house at Crescent Bar on Sept. 9

Crescent Bar’s past, present and future will be celebrated during a special public open house on Friday, Sept. 9 from 4 to 7 p.m., at Crescent Bar Island on the grassy park area east of the store.

Everyone is invited to attend the event held by Grant PUD to showcase the upcoming plans for the development of renovated recreation amenities in the Crescent Bar Recreation Area.

“We wanted to hold the event on the same weekend as Farmer-Consumer Awareness Day in Quincy because Crescent Bar is such a vital part of the Quincy Valley,” stated Grant PUD spokesperson Chuck Allen. “This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in Crescent Bar and recreation opportunities on the Columbia River to attend and learn more about the history of Crescent Bar and our exciting plans to improve the area.”

Part of the open house will include photos and graphics highlighting the history and activities that have shaped the Crescent Bar area, as well as conceptual drawings and graphics illustrating Grant PUD’s plans for upcoming public recreation improvements at Crescent Bar.

The PUD’s recreation development plans include:

  • Public RV campsites
  • Improved vehicle and trailer parking
  • Full restroom and shower facilities
  • Trail system
  • Improved multi-purpose park area with picnic plaza, playground, and swim beach
  • New commercial spaces
  • Boat moorage
  • Renovated boat launches

Grant PUD staff will be on hand to provide information and answer questions about the upcoming improvement projects. For information, e-mail lands@grantpud.org.
