Launch Location: George English Park. There is a sandy beach launch area in the corner of the park next to the Sunrise bridge that is prefect for launching kayaks. This park also has boat ramps. If you don’t have a trailer and don’t mind a more rocky launch area you can park and launch over by the tennis courts and park for free there.
Parking: Parking at this location is pay by the hour and the machine takes cash, plastic or pay by phone. You can also park over at the tennis courts for free and either walk over to this location or launch from the tennis courts location.
Description: We often launch from this location as it is close to home and very convenient. Most of the time we paddle south but on this day we paddled north, went under the Federal Highway bridge and continued up the waterway to Wilton Manors.
Kayak Rentals Availability: Rentals are not provided at this location but there is a paddle board kiosk at this location.
Amenities: There are public restrooms over at the tennis courts. A hose spigot is provided and there is a 7/11 across the street along with a shopping mall.
