Dayton adds Kayaking to Eastwood Metro Park
Dayton Ohio offers home owners, local residents and visitors a lot of fun, interesting and unusual things to do. The latest addition comes in the form of fast water recreation, kayaking at Eastwood Metro Park and increases the recreational amenities for home owners and residents in the area.
The new attraction drew two hundred visitors from around southwest Ohio to the official opening at Mad River Run, 1385 Harshman Road Monday, May 4th, 2014. This new exciting water attraction is being marketed and promoted as helping out the territory's conservation and need for expanding recreation. This newest Dayton attraction offers fast-water thrills for kayak and canoes enthusiasts along with deep water pools for fishing. A semi-circle of limestone steps on the riverbank allows boaters water access and observers a view of the action.
Engineered from a mix of concrete and stone structures with two passages of distinct features, was constructed at a cost of nearly $400,000, with $100,000 donation from the Rotary Club of Dayton.
Dayton Ohio Real Estate - Benefiting from Creative Planning
Dayton Ohio real estate continues its rebound from harsh times, and the metro area seems to be applying everything it can towards helping local real estate markets and economies along. Dayton also recently began implementing a program providing $300,000 in emergency repairs and paint jobs for two of it's most suffering neighborhoods Old North Dayton and McCook. The program is targeting moderate and low income households whose ageing, disabled and unemployed home owners are unable to make the needed repairs, some of which pose health and safety concerns. This and the addition of the new kayaking water park feature are just some of the efforts the city is making to boldly tackle both reality and perceptions.
I believe if the City of Dayton continues to collaborate with other public and private entities on improvement projects like this, Dayton Ohio real estate markets from small neighborhoods to the larger markets in suburbs like Centerville, Kettering and Huber Heights will collectively maintain the healing momentum and preserve the hard-won gains of last year and going forward.
