New Kayak Launch Pad in Salisbury Hopes to Get the Community Outdoors

Posted: May 24, 2018 6:54 PM Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- The City of Salisbury opened its new kayak launch pad on Thursday afternoon at the Port of Salisbury Marina. 

The pad provides space to put kayaks in the water before taking off into the Wicomico River.  Salisbury Mayor Jake Day says it's giving the community a new way to explore outdoor leisure activities this summer. 

While the launch pad does not provide kayak rentals at this point, the city says it hopes to have a new boathouse at the marina by next summer.  The boathouse is set to have a paddle board company with rentals and space to store equipment inside. 

Cherry Woote lives next door in the Rivers Edge Apartments.  She says she loves being in the water whenever she can, but doesn't have her own gear yet.

"I would be out here probably every day, during the summer I'm like a fish so I love to be in the water," Woote said.

    Progress on Bowers Beach Drainage Project at Mercy of the Tides

    Wrapping up the major replacement of a drainage system beneath an oft-flooded in Bowers Beach has proved to be a slower process than some town officials and neighbors have hoped for.

    A new drainage pipe has recently replaced a smaller and older one beneath Hubbard Avenue, a frequent spot for flooding after heavy rain. The system is intended to help flood waters disperse more quickly into the Murderkill River.
