Boat Launch Dock Update:

** UPDATE ** The docks have now been installed and are ready for use.


High water levels in the municipality have made it a challenge to install the floating docks at Mag’s Landing.

The docks are scheduled to be installed late next week, but this will depend on whether water levels drop enough to reach the installation brackets.

The Parks and Recreation Department is advising the boat launch may be utilized at the owner’s risk, but is recommending that boats be launched at Booster Park for the time being.

If you are not familiar with the area, Booster Park is located West of the village of Marmora off Highway 7 on Booster Park Road.

For more information about area boat launches, contact the Marmora Tourist Information Centre at 613-472-1515.
