Most of us would spend a lot more time kayaking if our boats were waiting for us at the boat launch. Well, the Friends of Lemon Bay Park are working on it. With the support of the Englewood Farmers Market and parent organization Friends of Sarasota County Parks, the volunteer group is $1,000 closer to building a public kayak storage system at Lemon Bay Park, providing a secure waterfront storage location for kayaks, canoes and stand-up paddle boards. The goal is to make accessing and enjoying a day on the water as easy and efficient as possible. The storage bays would be available to the public to rent for a small fee that would be reinvested into park programs and projects. The Friends of Lemon Bay Park have been actively fundraising to provide this amenity at the park. If you would like to make a donation or contribute to the project, please call Lemon Bay Park at (941) 474-3065.
Watch a day (or two) in the life of the Englewood Farmers Market... who knows you may see yourself shopping!!
