Occoquan Water Trail Access Enhancement Grant, September 2014 (Amount: $77,500)
Prince William County Parks & Recreation received a grant from the National Park Service, Chesapeake Bay Office to build a Universal Boat Launch designed for our wounded warriors and handicapped visitors to be able to launch their boats. It will be an enhancement to the Occoquan Water Trail.
The universally accessible canoe/kayak floating dock and launch at the Lake Ridge Park Marina, is a central feature of the Occoquan Water Trail Access Enhancement project. The project received funding from the National Park Service, Chesapeake Bay Office, through a matching grant under the Public Access and Trail Development partnership program.
The universal boat launch, designed and constructed with an ADA accessible transfer system, will enhance access and visitor experiences on the Occoquan Water Trail—a component of the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail.
Other project components include bank stabilization using a tiered system of bio-socks, a beach/soft launch area, an accessible pathway, and mile markers and other orientation signage along the water trail to make a more pleasant experience for all.
