Abonmarche worked with the City of Allegan to fund and build a canoe and kayak launch on the Kalamazoo River, adjacent to the City’s rapidly developing riverfront. The project was suggested during the City’s intensive public input process to create a vision for its riverfront area and nearby park land. Soon, the launch became a focal point, as residents and City officials explored the benefits of water trails both for residents and visitors. The launch is an accessible floating launch, anchored to the shore area via a hinged gangplank. This allows the launch to adjust to varying water levels related to nearby hydroelectric facilities.
