SOUTH HAVEN — Several governmental agencies in South Haven are working together, along with the South Haven/Van Buren County Convention and Visitors Bureau and South Haven Area Chamber of Commerce, to increase outdoor recreational opportunities for local residents and visitors.

Officials from the visitors bureau plan to partner with the South Haven Area Recreational Authority to create a new kayak launch on the Bangor/South Haven Heritage Water Trail, while the bureau and chamber plan to work together to help create an 18-hole disc golf course at the SHARA park on 14th Avenue.
