Main Beach Docks Repair Fundraiser

MainBeachDocks8x11-2 FINAL

Cultus Lake Foreshore Fundraising and Improvement Committee, are making Lower Mainland families aware that Cultus Lake Park, at the North end of the Lake, being Governed by the Cultus Lake Park Act,  receives no outside funding from Municipal, Regional, Provincial or Federal governments.

The docks are 70+ years old and this past winter, the storms made it necessary, to remove two large sections of the Main Beach docks.  We are aiming to remove the old creosote pilings, creosote support joists and replace them with the best engineered system available.

There are plans for Newspaper, Main Beach signage and website recognition for those contributing. We have prepared a scale of Sponsorship levels for you to choose from:

Bronze level would be $1000+
Silver would be $5,000+
Gold $10,000+
Platinum $25,000+
Diamond $50,000+

We also have a unique “Buy a Plank” program for $500.

The Cultus Lake Park Board can issue Tax receipts for donors, they can also process Credit and Debit cards. Cheques should be payable to – “Cultus Lake Park Board – Main Beach Docks Project”. Or visit the link below to make your donation online:
Main Beach Docks Project – Cultus Lake Park

With the goal of raising $2.0M, we will seek to partner with the Department of Fisheries and Transport Canada to obtain the required Permits. We are hopeful that work could begin in the spring of 2022 to remove the old docks and install the new.

We appreciate all of your support!
