Floating dock, picnic area part of new interpretive park at Basin Head
A new interpretive park has officially opened on the road to Basin Head beach in eastern P.E.I.
It includes interpretive panels, a floating dock, upgrades to the boat launch, a new picnic shelter, a research building and improved parking.
Fred Cheverie, of the P.E.I. Wildlife Federation’s Souris and area branch, the group that spearheaded the project, says it’s a place where visitors and people from the community can stop for a break or have a picnic.
“They can go kayaking, canoeing things of this nature,” he said.
“It’s just basically another site in the eastern Kings [County] area that might keep tourists there a little longer or enhance their day down at Basin Head beach.”
