Gray’s Bay Public Access and Marina, located at the corner of County Road 101 South and Gray’s Bay Boulevard, was acquired by the City of Minnetonka in cooperation with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Hennepin County, the Lake Minnetonka Conservation District, Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, City of Wayzata, and the Gray’s Bay Task Force.
Construction on the facility began in May 2002 and the project was completed in June 2003.
The site itself is owned by the DNR, while the City of Minnetonka owns the fuel system, permanent docks and the building (including an office, vending, and public restrooms). The DNR and the city entered into a cooperative operations agreement to jointly manage the site, with the city acting as on-site manager.
Amenities include a parking lot with 112 vehicle-with-trailer spaces and 21 vehicle-only spaces, three launch lanes and 29 permanent boat slips. Of the 21 vehicle-only spaces, 14 are reserved for boat slip holders.
The operating season is approximately April 1 to October 31, weather and ice-out dates permitting. During the season, the facility may be used 24 hours a day.
