Independence Park located on Lothrop Street in Beverly provides a large sandy beach for kayak access, but the beach can only be accessed by a steep set of stairs. There are no restrooms or any other facilities.


Independence Park

Because of the steep stairs, the buddy system probably will probably be needed to transport kayaks down to the water. A better put-in would be down the street at Dane Street Beach.


Independence Park Green

The grassy hill at Independence Park provides the public with a relaxing sunny area overlooking the mouth of Beverly Harbor.
