The West Street Canoe Launch is a small system of trails that provide access to the Ipswich River. These short trails provide easy entry for canoes and kayaks. The parking lot is just a short walk from the launch and picnic areas are available for a relaxing place to enjoy the outdoors. This pleasant walk through the woods allows for some of the best bird watching in Danvers as the area is home to a variety of waterfowl like Mallards, Great Blue Herons, and Egrets. In addition, other wildlife like Mink, crayfish, and otters can be found here.
