Annapolis Royal gets floating dock, boat launch
January 4th, 2012 by admin
And come summer, residents and visitors alike could be taking advantage of a new $173,452 boat launch and floating dock system on the east side of the causeway on Highway 1 at Granville Ferry.
West Nova MP Colin Fraser was flanked by Annapolis County Warden Timothy Habinski, Annapolis Royal Mayor Bill MacDonald, and Pam Vanroestel on behalf of Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil as he announced $93,432 for the project from ACOA’s Innovative Communities Fund.
Development activities include improvements to the roadway leading to the boat launch and emergency rescue access; improvements to the parking area to accommodate vehicles, including boat trailers; installation of a boat launch ramp, mooring and floating docks, and landscaping and interpretive signage.
The upgrades will make the site more efficient for pleasure boaters, tour operators, and the fire department’s marine rescue operations, ACOA said in a media release. It said the development will enhance a section of the waterfront that is currently underutilized, resulting in increased use of the outdoor recreation space by residents and visitors alike.
