Lake Ave Boat Launches Opening May 15th

Carleton Place Boat Launches on Lake Avenue Opening Friday, May 15th

The boat launches at the end of Lake Avenue will be opening this Friday, May 15th. At the recommendation of the Leeds, Grenville and District Health Unit, the launches are for use by Carleton Place residents only and on a day pass basis. Season passes will not be available for purchase at this time.

Staff has consulted with the Health Unit in regards to the safe usage of the site and stress the importance of respecting the following guidelines:

  • Residents are asked to boat only with those in their immediate household and with no more than 5 people;
  • Residents are asked to wait their turn and stay in their vehicle until the boat ahead of them has left the shore;
  • Residents will be not allowed to gather, meet friends, tailgate or picnic at the boat launch at this time;
  • Residents must maintain physical distancing guidelines of 6 feet/2 metres at all times.

Please note that docks will only be installed at the launches at the end of Lake Avenue. The portable toilet will not be installed at this time.

Town of Carleton Place By-law Enforcement Officers will be monitoring the area to ensure that safety precautions are being met.

We recognize this service is important to the residents of Carleton Place and we ask for your cooperation in order to be able to continue to offer this service.
