The Friends of Lake Barkley State Resort Park is hoping to raise money for its Universal Access Trail project with a night cruise on the lake.

The trail will be designed to be accessible to the blind and other people with disabilities. Recently, FoLBSRP member Jim Mullen estimated that it could cost as much as $200,000 at the highest to construct.

“It depends on what materials we use. We’re currently looking to use cement or concrete,” Mullen said. “First and foremost, it has to be ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant.”

The cruise calls for “dressy casual” wear and will take place from 7 – 9 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 9, on David Bostick’s boat. There are only 50 tickets available, and they cost $35 per person or $60 per couple, and can be bought at the Cadiz Comfort Zone or Save On Drugs. During the cruise, dinner there will be a silent auction to help raise more money for the trail.
