There may soon be new storage and launch facility for paddlers in the Outer Harbour, east of Cherry Beach. Waterfront for All Chair Ed Hore filed an application with the City's Strategic Partnerships department on June 1, 2021, for a facility to be named the Toronto Paddle Centre.
The City has acknowledged our waterfront needs more space for non-motorized water craft. City Council endorsed city staffs' efforts to boost canoe and kayak storage opportunities in an unanimous show of hands on June 8, 2021. We hope the City will see the Toronto Paddle Centre application as a viable way to meet that need.
The proposed site would have parking, and allow lots of people to keep a canoe or kayak near the water.
