The building in the plaza formerly known as Manos is now being operated by the owners of Restaurant 62 in Abbotsford. The Lakeside Beach Club will be opening later this month.
The Abbotsford Today wrote a short article (link here) about Chef Jeff Massey’s new endeavour.
Restaurant 62 will have a little sister this summer. This will be a place to enjoy Chef Jeff Massey’s amazing food in a casual, upbeat dining room or on the patio in the heart of Cultus Lake Park. The concept is more casual and family friendly but we will bring our high standards of food and service to the new location. We hope you will share our excitement with us as we take on this new challenge.
The Lakeside Beach Club is located in the building located at 4131 Columbia Valley Hwy. in the Plaza in the Park across from the Cultus Lake Waterslides. We will be open for lunch and dinner seven days a week through the summer. Winter hours to be announced.
Also, Cultus Lake Waterpark owner Chris Steunenberg was interviewed in a Chilliwack Progress article (link here) titled “Bodacious new bowls for water park fans”.
The Steunenbergs went ahead and bought the 10-year old Bazooka Bowls, tore them down, transported them and then galvanized the steel, and rebuilt the attraction at Cultus Lake.
Two of the three new rides are the Bowls, and the third is an inline raft ride with a 30-foot drop, that they’re thinking of calling the Boomerang.
The four-person raft takes riders through a curving course, with three figure eights, and a big drop. It’s got high banking corners that curve right in on the rider.
All together it’s been a multi-million investment, he says. The business has re-invested in the park every year for the past five years.
“We’ve shopped the best rides so a local family does not have to go to California to get this incredible experience. We’ve brought California right here.”
It is my best wishes for all our commercial leaseholders to have a prosperous 2013 as we come closer to the busy summer season.Comments are welcome!
