Parkway Awarded 1st ADA Grant from Frank C. Shattuck Foundation given through the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region, Inc
Posted by shari on October 22nd, 2013
Frank C. Shattuck Community Fund through the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region, Inc., recently awarded the Parkway with its 1st water trail ADA accessible boat landing to be put in Neenah at Shattuck Park.
Awareness and education will let people know the recreational opportunities on the Fox and Wisconsin Rivers, but access is still an issue.
The Parkway is working to solve the access issue by not only completely building out the water trail, but by also installing much needed ADA accessible landings from Green Bay to Prairie du Chien. The physically disabled population is grossly underserved when it comes to paddling access in the Fox Valley.
Many counties and municipalities along this route see this need and are anxious to have one of the ADA landings in their community, but do not have the funding in their budget. The Parkway is committed to this project, and knowing the fiscal issues, set out from the beginning to raise the funds necessary to make this trail fully functional, accessible to all, and well enough outfitted to warrant paddlers traveling from surrounding states to use it.
