No launch date yet for new kayak facility

Boaters hoping to get their vessels in the water at the anticipated Lions Park kayak launch will have to hold off.

Parks and Recreation Director Chad Hoier told the Parks and Recreation Board last Tuesday he doesn’t have an installation date.

“Badger Docks is currently working on the launch construction,” he said. “They will contact me when it’s ready.”

Parkitecture, the village’s design firm, has also not provided a completion date, but Hoier said they are actively working together. 

The kayak launch was approved and paid for with $10,000 from the Park and Recreational Facilities Fund.

Hoier said half of that money came from a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources grant.
