ALBERT LEA, Minn. – After months of planning and preparation, a new soft launch is now open on a southern Minnesota lake.
Albert Lea received $50,000 thanks to a Facebook campaign, to build the Golden Point Launch.
This new launch is designed for use by crafts, like kayaks and canoes.
Albert Lea Lake received the most online votes in the campaign started by beer company, Michelob Golden Light.
Folks got to try out the launch for the first time on Saturday.
“The response today has been fantastic. We’ve got people of all ages out here enjoying Golden Point Launch, enjoying all the amenities that are here at the Frank Hall Park. I think it’s a great addition to the waterways,” explains Laura Lunde, President of the Lakes Foundation.
