Project Details

The purpose of this project was to create a roadside park and an ADA accessible kayak launch along the Paw Paw River in Hagar Township.  The selected site was previously used as a township dump for many years earlier in history. The site had some previous cleanup work over the years completed prior to Abonmarche getting involved. Abonmarche was hired to provide survey, engineering, landscape architecture, permitting, construction administration, and grant administration for the project.

After meeting with the Township and local citizens during a preliminary design phase, Abonmarche developed and refined plans to incorporate elements that were important to Hagar Township residents. An application was submitted with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) trust fund grant, and the project was approved and partially funded by the State. Project amenities include a prefabricated pavilion structure, DNR style vault toilets, asphalt parking, grills, trash and recycle stations, a boardwalk to cross wetlands and access the river, a floating ADA accessible dock and gangway, vegetated retaining wall, and landscaping.
