Kayak Launch Hand-Carry Ramp
History and Background
Located beneath the Route 123 bridge at 111 Mill Street, the Town’s new Kayak Launch Ramp was largely funded through a grant the Town sought in 2010 from the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation. It is believed to be the only free, 24/7 public access ramp on the Occoquan River suitable for people with ambulatory disabilities.
