Kayak Launch Location
Marina Park, South Kingston: (Town Park) Directions from the North; get onto Rt 1 going south. Continue on Rt 1 until it turns to the west and exit at the Salt Pond Rd Exit for the Hospital. Turn off the exit ramp to the left toward the water and follow the road to the Park. If coming from the westerly direction on Rt 1, take the Salt Pond Rd Exit (also exit to Hospital). There are large parking lots on either side of the exit/entrance ramps on the south side of Rt 1. A large grassy area known as Heritage Field is the site for a number of annual events such as carnivals and boat shows. Parking at these times would be problematic. There are two launch ramps. The one least used by boat trailers is to the left (photo 2) of the PJYC building, directly south of the Rt 1 exit/entrance exits. The better up kept ramp is a short distance to the right and has a nice grassy knoll next to it. There are new public restrooms (open hours not known) next to the grassy park.
