SOUTH HAVEN — Last year, the South Haven/Van Buren County Visitors Bureau decided to contribute more than $200,000 into making recreation and cultural improvements in South Haven.

The bureau committed $90,000 toward a construction of a new kayak and canoe launch on the Black River, just south of Phoenix Road. It funded the installation of new bike racks, decorated by local artists, throughout the city’s downtown; helped fund the creation of a new disc golf course in South Haven Township near the Van Buren Trail; and helped organize nature education days on the Kal-Haven Trail for South Haven students.
