As of July 19 the Perry County Park has been offering a new service to the locals in the form of kayaks and canoes. Park-goers can rent either a single-person kayak or a canoe for a group for only five dollars per vessel. Life jackets, paddles and transportation to the launch of site are included in the rental. Participants will be taken and given assistance to the launch site located at the basketball courts and park next to City Hall where they will travel the 4.5 miles of the newly-named Northfork Trail. Floating the trail will take approximately two to three hours and ends back at the boat ramp in the Perry County Public Park. Kayak rentals are available from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday to Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.
