South Shore Blueway Trail Paddler's Workshop


Please join us! Help create this water trail.

  • Identify new launch sites
  • Map routes to key waterfront places
  • Suggest ways to promote safety
  • Explore ways to tell the rich history of local waterways


For more information, contact [masked]

Nassau County, the Village of Freeport and the New York State Department of State have commissioned a community-based waterfront planning initiative called the South Shore Blueway Trail Plan. The project encompasses Nassau County’s South Shore waterfront comprising the Hempstead Bays to South Oyster Bay.

The plan will serve as the foundation for a network of kayak and canoe launch sites along the South Shore by helping to integrate recreational activities and providing greater access to the water.

Going Coastal and Cameron Engineering & Associates have been selected to lead a team of urban design and technical experts to plan the blueway trail.

This letter invites you to participate in the first community meeting with local stakeholders to discuss:

        Locations for launch sites
        Routes to key waterfront places
        A continuous, safe water trail linking parks and places

The meeting will take place Thursday, April 4 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at the Freeport Recreation Center.  Please register to attend HERE.

A project website has been launched to hear from users of the South Shore waterfront and to inform people of the project’s findings:
