Local kayak practice runs for Lyons Outdoor Games

The Town of Lyons has engaged in and promoted kayaking programs through its Parks and Recreation Department for over a decade, through various programming opportunities and facility development. This has assisted in the development of several local kayaking champions, on the local and national scale.

To continue its support for the kayaking community, slalom gates will be installed through LaVern Park, within the next few weeks. Kayakers are welcome to utilize the gates as a practice course. The gates will be removed following the event, which will be held on June 1.

The gates will only be up during high water, when tubing and fishing opportunities are limited or less likely to occur, and can be pushed to the side when not in use. Careful measures will be taken to ensure trees are protected when the gates are hung.
