County Executive Leopold Announces New Canoe and Kayak Launch Site Program
Guide shows sites to launch or go fishing
Annapolis (September 10, 2008) - County Executive John R. Leopold today announced a new initiative providing citizens greater access to Anne Arundel County waterways.
The Department of Recreation and Parks has produced and made available a Car Top Boat Launch Site Guide identifying areas throughout the county for canoe and kayak launchings.
"Increased access to our waterways through our county park system has been a commitment of my administration," County Executive Leopold said. "This guide will help you discover waterway access points and passageways absent the hustle and bustle of everyday life."
The guide includes a county map identifying each car top boat launch site as well as nearby fishing spots and points of interest. Upon the completion of three future sites, citizens will have access to every major waterway in the county.
To further enhance enjoyment of our waterways, Anne Arundel County partnered with the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission in Prince George’s County to complete the Patuxent Water Trail. Shown on the new site guide, this trail starts just below Route 50 and travels south past the Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary in Lothian and beyond.
