ARB approves canoe launch

Fredericksburg’s Architectural Review Board Monday night approved plans to add a canoe launch to Old Mill Park.

The launch is expected to be completed by the end of August.

The Old Mill Park site is just downriver of the Falmouth Bridge and the end of the whitewater section of the Rappahannock. The next closest public launch is the boat ramp downriver at City Dock.

It’s about a two-mile trip from the Old Mill site to City Dock.
