Expansion and enhancement of the existing public access facility will encourage paddling, boating, fishing and passive recreation along the Buffalo River waterfront.
A. Debris Deflect - two floating deflectors will be installed to help dampen wave forces, as well as deflect floating debris and flowing ice away from the shoreline and boat launch.
B. North Path - to provide pedestrian connections to Ohio Street and the Shoreline Trail that evokes the former rail line.
C. Boat Launch - the improved boat launch will feature carry-in, car-top fishing boat access and paddlecraft launching with timber guiderails.
D. Central Dropoff - new vehicular and pedestrian traffic pattern will allow for more efficient hand launching.
E. Wheelchair Accessible Fishing Pier - A pedestrian promenade/walkway and fixed pier overlook platform will provide universal access to the river.
F. Parking - upgrades to parking area pavements and pathways to allow for improved access.
