Geoffrey Farr, Village of Howard Public Works director, said the decision to develop the quarry for recreation followed numerous inquiries over the last two years from "swimming and other training groups" asking for special permission to use the quarry.
It just made sense. Crews began construction in the winter, installing 60 parking spots along Glendale Avenue, creating a second smooth sand beach on the park's west side, buildng short walking trails surrounding the quarry and other smaller projects. The west beach is still partially under construction.
Farr said crews are continuing to pave out a walkway, add a railing and set up a buoy line in the water. Although the swimming area is clearly marked, the quarry does not have an on-duty life guard. By comparison, Farr said, a new pool, or even making upgrades to an existing pool, can cost millions. Construction will be complete in about three weeks, although the work this summer is just the first round of improvements. Farr said the hope is to eventually do more paving and add more railings and some sun shades.
