History of Lake Pleasant Regional Park

Lake Pleasant lies within the municipal boundaries of Peoria.  The lake was created by the construction of the Wadddell Dam in 1928 with a surface area of 3,700 acres and served primarily as a private irrigation project. It was filled by the Agua Fria river.   With the completion of the Central Arizona Project (CAP), the lake was converted into a storage factility for water from the Colorado River.   Inadequate to fulfill this New Wadell Dam at Lake Pleasantrole,  the New Waddell Dam was authorized and completed in 1993, tripling the surface area of the lake and leaving the old dam 100 feet below the current water level.  While still receiving water from the Agua Fria river, the main function is storage of water from the Colorado River that arrives via the Central Arizona Project.  The structure in the picture  to the left houses  the pumps that transfer water to the lake from the CAP aqueduct.
