ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) accessible canoe/kayak launch
Adding approximately 385 feet of paved, ADA-accessible trail to connect the existing Riverwalk Trail to the Memorial Tree Trail creating more than 2.7 miles of ADA-accessible, connected trails along the Grand River and through Grand Ledge
Improved boat trailer parking off of East River Street with the addition of three designated handicap parking spaces
Bank stabilization measures at the southeastern park boundary to support the viability of the land/trail systems and preservation of natural resources
