Being Safe Within Our Community
When asking Tim about Lake Conroe this year, he had some cautions for those hoping to get on the water this summer. “Be safe – the lake is more crowded than we have ever seen it this year. With a large number of people using the lake and the low lake level due to seasonal lowering by the SJRA, everyone needs to be extra careful and attentive.” When you take a trip to the Pier 105 Marina the team is ready to give advice and help keep you safe on the water. The ultimate goal for Pier 105 Marina is to see “everyone coming out having a good time, seeing everyone happy and enjoying the lake. Everyone comes out here to get away and have a good time.”
