Needles, California: Members of the Needles City Council unanimously voted to approve plans for the First Beach Park Design and to apply for the Clean California Local Grant Program during their regular meeting held on Tuesday, January 25th, 2022 inside the Needles City Council Chambers.

First Beach is located along the Colorado River off Marina Drive near Manny Morris Park and River Edge Golf Course in Needles, California.

According to documents from the City of Needles, On April 27, 2021 the Needles City Council gave direction to commence a design to develop a park at First Beach. City Staff has worked with TKE Engineering to develop a preliminary design.

As pictured above, the design includes:

  • 12,650 SF Grassy Knoll
  • Restroom building
  • Parking lot expansion (24 Spaces + 2 ADA)
  • Concrete and decomposed granite walkways
  • Shaded picnic tables with umbrella
  • Bench seating
  • Ramp to First Beach
  • Stairs to First beach
  • Covered play area
  • Solar pathway lighting along the trail, parking and grass area
  • Educational Stones along path and in the grassy area

As for the fiscal impact, the City of Needles said in the documents that the project is estimated to cost $1.8 Million. City Staff has been working directly with the California Department of Transportation (CALTRANS) to apply for the funding for the First Beach Design through the Clean California Local Grant Program.

The recommended action to members of the Needles City Council is to provide direction to staff.
