The Maryland Department of Natural Resources and Queen Anne’s County have created a new water trails map and guide to lead paddlers along six separate water trail routes in the Kent Island area of Queen Anne’s County. The colorful guide, printed on waterproof, tear-proof paper, was designed primarily for those touring by small, non-motorized boats, such as kayaks and canoes, but also provides information on motorized recreational boating access sites in the area. The map and guide features practical information and details on access points and paddling routes along the Chesapeake Bay, Eastern Bay, Chester River, Prospect Bay, Thompson Creek, and Warehouse Creek.
Island Dog Park has two fenced areas, one for little dogs another for larger breeds. Each is equipped with agility equipment for your dogs pleasure. The park also offers benches, picnic tables, and a water fountain designed to serve both people and dogs!
Dog Beach at Matapeake Clubhouse and Public Beach
Yes, there is a lovely spot where you may take your dog for a swim! A winding trail through the woods ends at the Dog Beach, on the sandy banks of Chesapeake Bay. Parking is located at the Matapeake Clubhouse and Public Beach lot; however, pets are not allowed at the clubhouse, its lawn, or the public beach. The pet trail begins at the fence that borders the rear of the clubhouse. Enjoy your visit and please bring along a plastic bag to clean up after your pet to ensure that this park stays open and available to dog lovers, while not posing a public health issue for the families using the public beach.
POLICE UNITY TOUR -2016 stopped by Rt. 18 Park
Started in May 1997, the Police Unity Tour® was organized, by Officer Patrick P. Montuore of the Florham Park Police Department, in an effort to bring about public awareness of law enforcement officers that have died in the line of duty and to honor their sacrifices. The tour started with 18 riders on a bicycle ride from Florham Park, NJ to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C. which raised $18,000. This May we had over 1800 members nationwide who made the trip, and we are proud to announce that we were able to donate over 1.9 Million Dollars to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, bringing our total donations to nearly 16 Million Dollars.
