GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Grand Rapids has opened its first accessible canoe and kayak launch.

The EZ launch is open at Riverside Park, located at 2001 Monroe Ave. NE, the city said in a Tuesday release.

The city also replaced a portable restroom near the parking lot with an accessible one, added handicap parking spaces and added paved pathways from the parking lot to the launch that are 8-feet wide.

Kayaking events throughout the summer, including family paddle night and guided kayaking adventures, will use the launch.
