Beginning Monday, access to the Canoe and Kayak Launch at Leake Mounds will be temporarily closed and not available for parking or as an Etowah River Access Point. This closure is due to a parking lot construction. The new parking area will be shared parking for the Canoe and Kayak Launch, the new 1.7-mile multi-use trail, and the Leak Mounds-Etowah River Walk link. The parking area is expected to be closed for about four weeks.
