A New Devils Lake Waterfront
More InformationShow full item record
Devils Lake is the largest natural lake in the state of North Dakota, it is also a closed basin lake, which helped contribute to its current flooding problem. In the future, when an outlet is created, the development of recreation areas tied to the lake will be an important amenity to the region. The reclamation of a more natural looking shoreline will again cause people to build along the lake and the lakeside population will start to grow. A public area along the lake that once flourished will again provide residents with the elements for an unforgettable experience. The design of a new waterfront will incorporate past precedents with modem design, to create an open space the city and area can be proud of. The design will primarily focus on the enhancement of human life on the site and the celebration of the areas unique history. The site will tie together the landmarks on the lake and increase the awareness and publicity of the development.
