At Our Doorstep - Getting on the Water

Natural beauty and recreational opportunity is right at our doorstep; Alan Spearman's photo captures it.

Today the only legal put-in for boats on the Memphis side of Wolf River Harbor is a small ramp under the Willis/Auction Street Bridge. If we want more recreational opportunities and a harbor full of boats, that needs to change. It's one good reason to repair, maintain, and open-up the Memphis Cobblestone Landing - not as currently proposed with riprap, a steeper slope, and a barrier wall separating the land from the water, but as a real, functioning boat landing.

The Landing's original design is perfect for the River's rise and fall. With some TLC, a push to clean-up our waters, and an invitation to come on down, we'd be set for the next 150 years.
