The Parks website features the first interactive map of the citywide water trail system, with detailed information about 28 locations where you can launch a kayak, canoe or retro submarine.Volunteers from various kayak/canoe clubs helped the Parks Department gather information about launch and landing areas throughout New York; the map has detailed info – which will be continually updated – with directions to each site, nearby amenities, where to paddle, and other tips.

The print version was released this morning when Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe officially announced the water trail guide at the Valentino Pier in Red Hook. Joining him were Going Coastal’s Barbara La Rocca, Hudson River Valley Greenway’s Scott Keller and members of the canoe and kayak community.
