The Licking Park District is happy to announce that we have completed the construction of the Canoe Launch at Riverview Preserve, and we would like you to share this special occasion with us.  Please consider joining us on Friday, May 22 at Noon for a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and a light lunch. For those who are interested, we are also hosting a float from our new canoe launch to Brownsville Road/Rt 668.

Riverview Preserve is located on Ohio Street in South Newark, next to the Don Edwards Ball Fields.  Watch for signs off of Second Street.
