The Point Park Will Be Closed For 15 Days To Prepare For Future Development

Beginning on Monday, March 12, the Pascagoula Parks & Recreation Department, in cooperation with Northrop Grumman Ship Systems, will close the Point Park so that preparations can be made on land prior to implementing the city's new development plan at The Point.

The Point (including boat ramps) will remain closed to the public for a period of at least 15 days for this construction work to be completed by Northrop Grumman.

The public will still have boat launch access at the other locations in the City. 

These public locations are:

  1. The Ladner Rd. boat ramp which is accessed by driving to the east end of Ingalls Ave, crossing Bayou Cassotte Parkway and turning right on Poitevin St., take a left on Ladner Rd. and the launch is just ahead. 
  2. The Spanish Fort boat ramp is located at the North end of Hickory St., access for this is off Lake Ave.
  3. The River Park boat ramp is located at River Park. Take the Hwy 90 exit ramp to Northrop Grumman Ship Systems and turn left at the traffic light at the intersection of the causeway leading to the Naval Station. Turn left in front of Pascagoula Cold Storage and follow the road around until you reach Clark St. which leads into River Park. The boat ramp is at the North end of the park.
  4. The Old Lions Club boat ramp is located just east of River Park. Drive to River Park and just as you go under the Hwy 90 bridge take a left on River's Edge Rd. that parallels Hwy 90.

Also, the west end of Beach Blvd. at Pascagoula St. will close on Sunday night around 10pm.

For more information please contact the Pascagoula Parks & Recreation Department at 228-938-2356.
