Special kayak launch coming to Carmody Park

Although the kayaking season might be ending, Door County is looking to upgrade one of their larger parks with a handicap-accessible kayak launch.  Robert M. Carmody Park in the Town of Gardner has a six-lane boat launch with an ADA fishing pier already.  Parks and Facilities Director Wayne Spritka says Door County received over $6,000 in DNR grants to build the kayak launch.  He says there are a couple of options to where it will be situated, depending on the status of the high water levels.



The project is planned to be completed next spring and will cost about $12,000.  If additional grant money or donations are not received, boat launch revenues would cover the shortfall, according to Spritka.  Carmody Park has three wheelchair-accessible areas on the attenuator pier for fishing as well.  The dock is 350 feet long and 12 feet wide.
