Onondaga Creek Kayak/Canoe Launch

Case Name:


United States of America

Restoration Types:



Affected DOI Resources:

Recreational Use Loss





Project Description

The City of Syracuse will construct a canoe/kayak launch on the west side of Onondaga Creek at Kirk Park and to improve creek navigability through removal of downed and impediment trees. Within the City, Onondaga Creek has no designated canoe/kayak launch sites, and few areas provide suitable access for fishing. This project will provide needed natural resource recreational benefits to Syracuse as Onondaga Creek is within ½ mile walking/biking distance of one-third of the City’s 140,000 residents, and immediately adjacent to low-income Environmental Justice (EJ) neighborhoods.
