SNOW HILL, MD – The Town of Snow Hill received grant funds of $18,785 from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Program Open Space to purchase new floating docks in two of its parks. The Town recently installed the floating docks in Sturgis Memorial Park and in Gateway Park to encourage paddling on the Pocomoke River.
As Snow Hill seeks to brand itself as a destination for outdoor tourism, it wants to entice visitors interested in paddling sports with easy access to the river. The 10×15 foot modular dock in Sturgis includes a Paddle on – Slide off Kayak Launch which gives the paddler a stable and more secure way to enter or exit the deep waters of the Pocomoke. Its unique design by EZ Docks includes notches the paddler can use with his paddle to pull the kayak in and out of the water with ease.
The dock in Gateway Park is 10×20 which provides easy access to the water from the low-lying boardwalk in front of the Pocomoke River Canoe Company. The skid proof surface of the docks makes them ideal for kayaks, standup paddleboards, and canoes. Both docks are owned by the Town and are available for public use with no charge.
The purchase of these floating docks was made possible through a grant from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Program Open Space. The Town would like to thank the Worcester County Commissioners and the Worcester County Recreation and Parks for their assistance.
