The City of Pascagoula's Point Park Project is still underway. It will feature parking, restrooms, and a grassy, tiered amphitheatre.

"The Point Park Project has the potential of drawing thousands of people to Pascagoula's beachfront. We are looking forward to realizing that potential, and to it becoming a new and unique event venue," said City Manager, Joe Huffman.

The project was originally scheduled for completion in March of 2014. However, due to multiple weather delays as well as unforeseen underground conditions, the completion date has been pushed back.

"We are currently working with our contractor and engineers to determine a new timeline," said Parks Director, Darcie Crew. "We will remain proactive in furnishing the public new information as soon as it becomes available. At this point, we anticipate that the completion date will come no later than April 30th - hopefully sooner, barring any other unforeseen circumstances."

The Point Park Project was financed using a combination of Tidelands, CIAP, and in-house funding from the Department of Parks and Recreation. The total projected cost of the project is $1,472,267.
