New Kayak Launcher to be Installed at Port Perry Pier and Caesarea Pier
As part of the Township of Scugog’s Waterfront Action Plan, Council has approved the installation of a kayak launcher at the Government Pier, funds made possible by Mr. and Mrs. Compton in partnership with the Scugog Kayak Club!
A kayak launcher is a piece of equipment attached to a dock that aids paddlers in pushing their kayaks into the water easily while also increasing the accessibility of paddlers to use Lake Scugog for kayaking.
The Scugog Kayak Club, newly formed in 2023, secured a grant of $5,000 from Mr. and Mrs. Compton to cover the cost of the launcher. The leftover funding from this donation will be kept in reserves in anticipation that future donations can be collected to cover the cost of a second launcher to be installed at the Caesarea Pier.
Annual installation of the launcher is expected in mid-April with removal by October 31, weather dependent.
The Port Perry launcher will be installed Tuesday, July 4, with a ceremonial ribbon cutting Wednesday, July 5, at 4:00 p.m.
With additional funding from Mr. and Mrs. Compton, a second launcher will be installed on Friday, July 21, at the Caesarea Pier.
