Hand Carry Boat Launch

Hand-carry Boat Launch is located at 58 Lincoln Street (behind the Four-Season Rink + Court). This project is intended to improve access to the Presumpscot River for canoes + kayaks (not motorized or trailered boats). The project will also address:

  • Modernization of the on-site parking lot at this unique park, which includes ADA compliance + drainage.
  • Erosion + sedimentation from the parking lot + access driveway down to the River.
  • Stabilization of the riverbank with a robust planting plan once goats have cleared invasive species + other dense vegetation.

Traffic Disruption

Reconstruction of the parking lot at 58 Lincoln Street may interrupt traffic in this area in late 2021 + early 2022.

Goats, provided by ecoScapeGoats, will be brought into the park for two weeks in July 2021 + two weeks in August 2021 to combat invasive species within the shoreland zone.

Parking Disruption

Once the parking lot is reconstructed, there will be 2 ADA-compliant spaces + 13 regular parking spaces. On-street parking is also available along Lincoln Street where indicated by street signs.

Pedestrian + Bus (Metro) Disruption

Pedestrians + users of the Hand-Carry Boat Launch and the Four-Season Rink + Court should follow pedestrian access signs to avoid entering active construction zones.
