The Plattsburgh Sunrise Rotary Club dedicated three years of fundraising efforts through its Mayor's Club Regatta celebration to create a legacy community project — a pavilion constructed at Wilcox Dock Park on Lake Champlain, Cumberland Avenue in the City of Plattsburgh. This project was dedicated July 12, 2012.
The facility, which sits between Wilcox Dock and the City of Plattsburgh Healthy Lungs Trail, includes several picnic tables and offers scenic views of Lake Champlain.
The Sunrise Rotary Club collaborated with the City of Plattsburgh and the NYS Canal Corporation to locate this community amenity on scenic Cumberland Bay, Lake Champlain. The Sunrise Rotary Club shared the City and Canal Corporation's vision for improving family-friendly lake access at this beautiful spot, located right in the heart of the city.
Sunrise Rotary Waterfront Project Committee Chair Victoria Duley said the pavilion makes a wonderful connection with the City, the Cumberland Avenue neighborhood and other facilities available at Wilcox Dock.
The club is pleased to help improve the amenities at this growing park which is easily accessible to city residents and will serve visitors from other parts and outside of Clinton County.
