Channel Islands National Park, on Sept. 8, announced plans to remove the old Landing Cove dock at Anacapa Island to improve is ease of access and improved safety when disembarking to the island.
Park Superintendent Ethan McKinley said this is the beginning of the design planning process. The park is asking input to the project from the public.
The new dock will have a vertical lifting platform, allowing visitors and park staff to easily move from boats to the landing. This new lift system requires widening the dock footprint by approximately 6 feet and is designed to last 50 years.
