New kayak launch dock installed in Webster Parish

by Amber McDown

The latest kayak launch dock in Webster Parish was installed on Saturday, May 18. Sponsored by Webster Parish Tourism, the new dock is located at the public boat ramp on Highway 164 between Sibley and Doyline.

The EZ Dock product was installed by Jeremy Lewis of NeLa Marine Docks, the company responsible for evaluating proposed sites and advising on appropriate dock types. Site preparation was performed by the Webster Parish Police Jury.

“The work that goes into preparing the land for these docks is done with the police jury’s help. They see the vision of Tourism. They see what we’re doing, and they want to help us accomplish the dreams and the plans that we have for the parish. We could not be doing this project without the police jury’s partnership and cooperation,” said Serena Gray, executive director for Webster Parish Tourism.

Last June, a similar dock was installed in Dixie Inn. The next installation is planned for the north end of the parish. A ribbon cutting to officially open the new dock will be held soon, though a date has not yet been set.

This initiative highlights the ongoing efforts to enhance recreational facilities in Webster Parish, providing more opportunities for outdoor activities and promoting local tourism.
