Isabella County Parks and Recreation

Improvements Continue on Boat Launch at Coldwater Lake Family Park

boatlauncwork02Exciting changes will be coming to Coldwater Lake Family Park this spring. Isabella County Parks and Recreation has just completed the first phase of construction to expand and improve the Coldwater Park Boat Launch. Following the close of the 2014 camping season, work was started to dredge the existing boat launch area, making it wider and deeper. This work was recently completed, having removed about 700 square feet of material. The old launching ramp was removed and replaced with new ramp that’s more than twice as wide, making the boat launch now large enough to allow two boats to launch at the same time. Construction will continue in the spring 2015. Upcoming improvements include a second floating dock that will feature a universally accessible canoe/kayak launch system that will make it easy to launch from the dock without ever stepping in the water.
