Made up of 27 acres of wetlands donated to the town in 2005 from Kirby Sullivan and 1.2 acres of uplands acquired with a 2007 Coastal Waterfront Access Grant from the state Division of Coastal Management, Cypress Cove Park (formerly Sturgeon Creek), located at 844 Appleton Way, provides citizens with the Town's first water access site. The access is designated for people to launch kayaks, canoes, and small Jon boats. The Town recently added a new canoe/kayak launch, floating dock, fixed deck overlook and handicapped accessible fishing area, outdoor classroom, parking lot improvements and other amenities. The goal of the project is to create a fully-functional neighborhood water access site that can be utilized by the public and local schools.
