Access Lake Higgins

City of Greensboro, Summerfield, NC

Project Access Lake Higgins provides access to outdoor recreation to individuals of all abilities in an inclusive environment through the installation of an accessible and universally designed kayak/canoe launch, sidewalks and accessible parking. The launch will allow individual use and create independence for individuals to recreate in nature along with friends and family at their own leisure as well as provide an opportunity for more inclusive programs and events.
