An accessible canoe/kayak launch was completed in April 2016 and meets requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). It is a floating dock equipped with a “Universally Accessible Transfer System” that allows an unassisted individual with a physical disability to access a canoe or kayak. It consists of a bench that slides over onto a railing system that allows the individual to sit down into a canoe or kayak.
