Fred Locke repairing the pier at Ski Lake
The Ski Lake renovations have progressed to the second phase and the valve has been closed. The lake should return to full pool over the next few weeks.
Completed in Phase 1 of the renovations were repairs to the boat launch, replacement of the near-by retaining wall, excavation of the shore near the boat launch and across the lake at the island, demolition of the old boardwalk, and the renovation of the dock with new composite lumber. Phase 2 is already underway and is planned to include the installation of a new pressed concrete deck, the diversion of run-off from the center of the park to a new ditch by the parking lot, and maintenance work to the swimming pier.
L.P.O.A. Clean-Up Day making our streets beautiful

Coming Together to Build a Better Neighborhood.
Nothing better displays the strength and character of our little lakeside community than the way the members of the L.P.O.A. come together to make our small corner of Tuscaloosa County a better place to live and enjoy life. From simply picking up trash in and around the common properties to organized clean-up days, L.P.O.A. members can be found day in and day out working to keep our lakes and parks beautiful.
Most of our piers were built and donated by members, as was the boardwalk at Ski Lake Park.
Boy Scout Troop 71, made up of the sons and grand sons of our community, is almost solely responsible for the beautiful park at Scout Lake.
On every dam, every spillway, and every boat ramp you can find the tracks of hand tools and heavy equipment that our members used to help improve our community.
So next time you see a member taking a sample to test our water quality, mowing the banks, or hauling in a picnic table, know that there are always L.P.O.A. members doing their part to make our part of the world a better place for our friends and neighbors.
The Parsons Lake project has been ongoing for over a year now and is finally complete. Residents on the shore can look forward to a beautiful view from their decks and porches once enough rain has fallen to return the lake to full pool.
