Slalom Gates at Black Bear Hole

Lyons Kids Kayak Club Training

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.

The Lyons Kids Kayak Club has set slalom gates at Black Bear Hole for training purposes, and will be maintaining them throughout fall. Careful measures will be taken to ensure trees are protected when the gates are hung.
