Business owners, residents angry with Garland’s Bass Pro Shops for Lake Ray Hubbard boat docks in disrepair

There’s nowhere to dock at Harbor Point, Garland’s lakeside development jump-started with $23.7 million of public money to develop a site for Bass Pro Shops to move into as anchor tenant. The 20-slip boat dock Bass Pro built south of Interstate 30 at Lake Ray Hubbard split in half more than a year ago and has been closed this spring after falling into disarray. And neighbors at Harbor Point are not pleased.


“Scenic overlook provided by T.L.C.” the sign reads on the patio at Texas Land & Cattle. But instead of an active place where boaters tie down for a visit, that overlook now includes empty slips, marked with yellow tape. Storms over the 10-year life of the dock are to blame, said Bill Megelich, general manager of Garland’s Bass Pro. The staff there realized in February that routine maintenance was no longer enough, the dock was dangerous and experts needed to be called in for the fix.
