Mulberry Cove Marina

***Starting July 22, 2019 MWR’s Mulberry Cove Marina will work to repair its launch ramp. The project will commence by replacing the existing concrete and then expanding it to facilitate backing trailers down the ramp. To ensure customers have access to the river, repairs will only occur on one side of the ramp at a time. The beach area will remain open for kayaking and canoeing. Customers using the beach will be routed down the marina lawn and across the well-marked pedestrian crosswalk. This project is set to finish September 16, 2019.***
