durhamregion.com | Ajax considers canoe and kayak rentals at Rotary Park

"The already popular Rotary Park may soon offer even more recreation options with the addition of canoe and kayak rentals.

Currently there is a boat launch at Rotary Park which members of the public use to access Duffin's Bay and Lake Ontario for canoeing and kayaking. Ajax also holds canoeing camps there for children.

In January, council asked staff to come up with a feasibility report on allowing canoe and kayak rentals at the site.

'We thought it might be a good location for a vendor to set up a canoe and kayak rental,' said Howie Dayton, Ajax's director of recreation and culture."

Making recreation more accessible is a sensible first step in improving health. OTC
