Brown Street Paddle & Grill

  • Brown Street Boat Ramp Westbrook, ME (map)

Join us for a fun family-friendly event on the river. Meet at Brown Street Boat Ramp (near the RR bridge, across the river from the baseball fields) where FOPR and professional guides from Portland Paddle will help outfit you with a kayak or stand-up paddleboard to try for free (or catch a ride with an experienced paddler if you’re new to these sports). Opportunity Alliance will host a BBQ and the Locker Project will be giving fresh produce to participants! The Presumpscot River is the largest freshwater input into Casco Bay. Its name, "Presumpscot", originates from the local Abenaki word meaning "many falls" or "many rough places", revealing its true natural identity; however, we will be on the calm part of this many faceted waterway!
