1. Kayak launch ribbon-cutting
The city will celebrate the recent installation of an EZ Kayak Launch at Harvey E. Oyer Jr. Park, 2010 N. Federal Highway, on Friday at 9 a.m. The public is invited and will have the opportunity to use the launch and take a brief kayak tour on the Intracoastal Waterway. The launch provides independent access to the water for kayakers with mobility disabilities.
The city used a $28,500 grant from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and money from the city’s Park Impact Fund to pay $58,870 for the launch and to install it.
The kayak launch is open daily and is free to use. A $10 daily parking fee is required to park on holidays and weekends. Parking is complimentary on weekdays.
