Kayak Launch Planned in Amesbury, MA

A kayak launch is scheduled to be built in the Lower Millyard on the Powow River in Amesbury, MA, a short walk from downtown.

The city hopes to make the area a premiere kayaking destination, and a study is underway that will allow kayakers to know about the tides around the launch site, according to the Newburyport News. The study is being conducted by Code & Circuit, a nonprofit computer science classroom specializing in after-school technology courses founded by Ken Aspeslagh. The Powow is a tributary of the Merrimack River.
