Croghan Launch Opens, Marking Completion of CFSI’s First-Ever Quality of Place Grant
In 2021, the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana awarded its first-ever Quality of Place: Pathways to Progress grant worth $100,000 to River Heritage Conservancy. The funding supported the organization’s first project within Origin Park: a kayak and canoe launch point.
On April 19, that vision finally came to fruition as the Foundation joined in celebrating the opening of Croghan Launch in Clarksville, Ind.
The access point will paddlers to launch canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards into Silver Creek. Guests of all experience levels will be able to travel from Blackiston Mill Road to the Ohio River – a beautiful 4.5-mile stretch that will eventually access Origin Park’s Quarry Pond.
