American Lake Boat Launch will open temporarily on Saturday and Sundays beginning July 19, 2008. The site is open from 7:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. on the weekends and launching will be FREE. The Parks Department was able to build a temporary float system to support launching. The site is still under construction so we appreciate everyone using care and caution when launching their boats. Informational signage and fencing is in place to help boaters use the site appropriately. The site will close in late September so we can finish the site improvements. Any questions should be directed to the Parks and Recreation Department at (253) 589-2489.
