ADA Wheelchair Accessible Fishing Pier on Lady Bird Lake
The CORE Health Foundation is raising funds to build an ADA Wheelchair Accessible Fishing Pier on Lady Bird Lake. We received approval from the Austin City Council in November 2010 and are excited to move forward with this important project. Please visit our website for more information.

We are a new disability advocacy non-profit in Austin and appreciate any support you can provide to help us network with the fishing community and helping us to identify potential people/corporations that may be interested in getting involved.
Thank you for your support!

It's gonna cost $400,000 to build a fishing pier?
Right by the Holiday Inn Town Lake.

Great concept. Anything to increase accessibility for fishing and enjoying the lake in general seems like a good idea. Agree that $400,000 seems steep for a pier, but if it is well built and extends well into the lake with a cover and lights, etc., then I could see how it might add up. Looks like it has a ~80ft T-head design that should allow >100 fishermen on at a time. Architect fees may be substantial too. Will this pier be open to the public (I assume), or to the disabled only?

LOL....Block those rowers
