What & Why?
Regional Parks is planning to renovate the existing boat launch facility at Hudeman Slough so that it is usable for all types of water recreation. The project involves demolition of the existing boat ramp and dock, and the reconstruction of a new ramp, dock and gangway system.
Additional project components include the addition of a low freeboard, accessible (ADA) kayak launching dock, a permanent restroom building, resurfacing of the parking area and the provision of additional overflow parking. Additionally, the preliminary plans call for an accessible (ADA) path between the campsites, parking lot, restroom facility, and the dock and ramp along with environmental mitigation. See links below for more detail.
