Working together with Northwest Indiana Paddling Association (NWIPA).
It is through a strong commitment to creating partnerships that we are able to work in bringing accessibility to all. In the fall of 2015, Michigan City installed the first ADA canoe kayak launch in Northwest Indiana. We wanted to make sure that the City of Gary would not be too far behind, together with NWIPA we worked tirelessly to make this happen. With the support of the Legacy Foundation, local organizations and individuals this will become a reality at the start of Summer 2016, an accessible canoe/kayak launch will be installed in Marquette Park Lagoon.People of all abilities, including wheelchair users, will be able to visit Marquette Park and experience the river ways. We a little bit more to go in raising the funds needed, anyone wishing to donate, please make a deposit in our account with Chase Bank or use paypal. Thank you.
