Ribbon Cutting and Opening for New Paddling Launches

On May 24th at 6 PM the City of Menasha, Fox Cities Greenways and the Friends of the Fox will have a ribbon cutting and opening of two quiet launch docks in Jefferson Park and at the Menasha Marina. Greenways and Friends of the Fox donated funding for the purchase of the two quiet launches. The two launch sites are designated locations on the Fox Wisconsin Heritage Parkway Water Trail. Paddlers will now have easy access and portages for paddle outings on the segment of the Water Trail between Menasha and Sunset Park in Kimberly. Over this summer the FWHP, Greenways and FOF will extend the Water Trail on the upper Fox and at locations north of Kimberly on the lower Fox.

    • Hi Dale, The launch is on the very far West end of the Park. It’s actually before you enter the park by vehicle. It’s off Broad St. about where Green Bay St. intersects. The launch is a small white platform about 5 x 8 connected to the sea wall. There is also another one at the marina but I haven’t seen it in person yet.
