Accessible Water Access at Lake Crabtree Promoting Recreation for All

Bridge II Sports, Morrisville, NC

Through the efforts of Bridge II Sports and corporate and community partners, Lake Crabtree County Park is now home to the most accessible dock in the country giving recreational water access to all. The Duke Energy Water Resource Fund generously provided storage, kayaks and adapted equipment to create paddle sport opportunity for people with physical disabilities in North Carolina and beyond.

Counties Impacted:

  • Wake
  • Durham
  • Orange
  • Cumberland

The plan took five years, generous community donors, experts, and municipalities to come together with the goal of creating water access for everyone. We are excited for the benefits to the community as the dock draws watersport competitions and paddlers from all over to the Triangle.
