The new Clarksville Marina at Liberty Park in Clarksville, Tenn., is now open.

Atlantic Meeco and Cumberland River LLC partnered to build the marina, which includes a fuel dock/platform and five docks with 85 covered slips. Liberty Park also offers sports fields, cultural events, a dog park, a pavilion and The Cumberland Tavern restaurant, according to an Atlantic Meeco release.

“This is a landmark achievement for the city of Clarksville, and we knew that Atlantic Meeco was the best partner to help us deliver a first-class marina that would accommodate the demanding river flow and changing water levels,” Cumberland River LLC president Darby Campbell said in a statement. “Plus, they were the only supplier that would guarantee the marina would be installed and operational in 60 days and they delivered on their promise by doubling up crews and completing the project within budget.”

“This project showed once again why our 50 years of experience is invaluable to our customers and that the quality of our designs, our products and our staff made the critical difference getting this marina completed in 60 days,” said Atlantic Meeco president Steve Sullivan. “We are very proud of this project.”

Atlantic Meeco has more than 50 years of experience and has completed 3,000 marina and dock projects with 60,000 slips worldwide.
