Spring is making its way to eastern North Carolina, and warmer weather means more people will be out kayaking and paddleboarding the local waterways. A new kayak launch at Havens Garden in Washington will ease their way onto the water and the Pamlico-Tar Water Trail. The launch has been years in the planning, a partnership between Sound Rivers, the City of Washington and the Wildlife Resources Commission, courtesy of a $100,000 Recreational Trails Program grant.

The kayak launch is awaiting its last piece: a cement pad at the base of the ramp where paddlers can offload their vessels.
