Pine Tree Park Kayak Launch

As part of the citywide shoreline improvements, the Office of Capital Improvement Projects installed a kayak launch at Pine Tree Park in 2012.

Some invasive vegetation was removed and native species will be replenished along the shoreline. The area was excavated, re-graded and 200 square feet were used for the launch ramp.

The kayak launch was partly funded with a grant by the Florida Intracoastal Navigational District. Now Pine Tree Park provides a vista of the historic canal as well as a public access point to the waterway that is both ADA compliant and minimizes impact to the surrounding protected vegetation.
