Canoe-building project a voyage of discovery for Park students
Nobody smashed a bottle of champagne on the bow as the canoe embarked on its maiden voyage.
Still, the mood at Cottage Grove Ravine Regional Park May 27 was celebratory in a low-key way.
Park High School junior David Constantine, 17, was among the first to strap on a life jacket and paddle his handiwork out onto the lake on a muggy spring afternoon.
It was the culmination of months of work at Park, where he and four other students built the canoe from scratch.
