New marina open on Mabel Lake

The new marina, features a 265-foot aluminum pier, 6,000 lineal feet of concrete walkways

A new amenity in the Kingfisher area will be officially unveiled Friday.

The grand opening of the new Mabel Lake Marina will take place at noon.

“Mabel Lake Holiday Centre will host the ribbon-cutting event and public barbecue as a means of acknowledging and thanking all levels of government for their co-operation towards the successful completion of this multi-million-dollar, privately funded project,” said Terry Laursen, who owns the business with his brother Ken.

The new marina, features a 265-foot aluminum pier, 6,000 lineal feet of concrete walkways, 260 slips for mooring recreational boats, boat loading zones, security gates, safety lights, signage and defined swim/boat areas along with 86 golf cart parking spots and an adjacent marina  parking lot. There has also been a rebuilding of the Mabel Lake beach breakwater and an expansion to the boat launch.

“The marina will be an added feature to the beautiful recreational area of Mabel Lake for all residents and tourists to enjoy for years to come,” said Terry Laursen.

Phase three of the project is set to begin in the spring of 2016 with the development of a retail outlet.
