On Memorial Day, Monday, May 27, at 12:00 p.m., a ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at the Cassen Park Fishing Pier, 1 South Beach Street.
The Cassen Park Fishing Pier was extensively damaged when Ormond Beach was impacted by Hurricane Irma in 2017. Approximately 6,600 square feet of the pier top decking and framing were demolished leaving only the pilings standing most of which were left misaligned. The City engaged the services of one of its continuing contract consultants, Dredging & Marine Consultants (DMC), to design repairs that were recently constructed by Brothers’ Construction, Inc. The project included demolition and removal of the existing pilings, construction of a new pier with ADA accessible fishing stations, installation of new lighting, and installation of a fish cleaning station. The cost for these improvements was nearly $760,000 and were funded in large part by FEMA (75%) and the State of Florida (12.5%).
In conjunction with the ribbon cutting, Ike Leary, of Ike’s Granada Pier Bait & Tackle will be celebrating 20 years at Cassen Park! The celebration takes place from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Ike will have free hot dogs, raffles, and live entertainment by Memphis & Me.
Parking is available in the City Hall parking lot.
