June 21st - launching promptly at 6:15 |
Chocolateville Landing – Central Falls
Leader: Erik Eckilson firstname.lastname@example.org 617-794-0378
We will put in at the Chocolateville Landing and paddle up to Valley Falls. This is a pretty section of the Blackstone River that rarely gets paddled. The put-in is on Charles Street at the intersection with Roosevelt Avenue (37 Charles Street, Central Falls, RI 41.888221, -71.3822850).
From 95 North, take Exit 30 toward East Street/Central Falls. Merge on to Fountain Street. Turn left on to East Street. Turn left on to Roosevelt Avenue. Turn right on to Charles Street just after the bridge.
From 95 South, take Exit 30 for Roosevelt Avenue toward Central Falls. Merge on to Middle Street, and take a quick right on to Roosevelt Avenue. Turn right on to Charles Street just after the bridge.
There is a pull-off for unloading boats that will hold 2 or 3 cars, but there is NO other parking at the put-in. You will need to move you car after unloading and find on-street parking in the neighborhood nearby. That will result in a walk of at least a couple of blocks.
After unloading we will have to have folks move their cars so others can pull in. There is no on-street parking near the put-in on Charles Street or Roosevelt Avenue, so people will need to go up about a block and park on a side street.
