What are the plans for the boat ramp at the Old Trails End site?

Ken Little

“[There] was an informational meeting [last week at Parsley School] just to show that we are moving on with construction of the park,” says Jim McDaniel, director of Airlie Gardens.

Work will start on the boat ramp project this month and take two to three months, McDaniel says. The project is being done in conjunction with the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission.

The land for the boat ramp was acquired in 2007 for $4 million. Components of the project include dredging, bulkhead repairs, a single concrete ramp and turnaround area, an adjoining dock and fencing and landscaping.

The ramp itself will be less than 20 feet in length and will be built to accommodate smaller boats, McDaniel says.
