Public Kayak Launches Installed in Fairmont and Rivesville


Two new kayak launches are now installed in Marion County.

An ADA accessible launch is now installed at Palatine Park, after a purchase from the Marion County Commission. Another launch is located near the boat docks in Rivesville.

The Marion County Parks and Recreation Commission (MCPARC) Events Director said they will cater to a large crowd of kayakers in the area.

“Hopefully in the next couple years we can start putting them in Worthington, Monongah and Prickett’s Fort so people will have these starting stopping points all over the river to get to,” said John Provins. 

The kayak launch in Rivesville was purchased through a grant from MCPARC.
