City residents were invited to join Mayor Allen Joines and members of the City Council at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Salem Lake Marina Center on Friday, March 23.

To celebrate the occasion, Mann Marine offered free pontoon boat rides.  Before the ribbon cutting, a free session of the yoga classes was taught at the marina center. 

In addition, Zagster offered half off its annual membership fee for use of its bike-share stations, including the station at the Salem Lake Trail. A bike ride was held around the lake after the ceremony.

The marina center was built with $4 million in bonds that voters approved in the November 2014 bond referendum for improvements at Salem Lake Park. Other improvements include a new playground, new restrooms and parking areas at the Linville Road and Salem Lake Road trail heads, and renovations to the lakefront activity area.

On March 18, Salem Lake also had a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate Winston-Salem’s first Kids in Parks location.  To celebrate the occasion, Zagster offered free use of its bike-share station at Salem Lake, so parents could ride the trail with their kids. The Track Trail at Salem Lake consists of nine stations along the seven-mile Salem Lake Trail. Each station provides information about plants and animals that make Salem Lake their home, as well as information about the value of the lake and why it is important to keep it clean.

This is the first bike Track Trail in the Triad. In all there more than 150 Track Trail locations in North Carolina, nine other states and District of Columbia. The mission of Kids in Parks is to get kids away from technology, and out into nature and physically active. For more information about the program and locations, and to register, go to
