Sandwich Boardwalk

I am glad I finally got a chance to go see the Sandwich Boardwalk with my wife . She has been asking to go for quite some time. The Boardwalk crosses Mill Creek and beautiful marshes, leading to a lovely public beach on Cape Cod Bay. Stretching 1350 feet in length, the original wooden walkway was virtually destroyed by Hurricane Bob in 1991. Residents and supporters rebuilt the Boardwalk by selling over 1700 personalized planks. It remains one of Sandwich's unique treasures, offering scenic views from the Cape Cod Canal to Scorton Creek. To reach the Boardwalk, follow Route 6A to Jarves Street. The Boardwalk is located at the end of Jarves and Harbor Streets, ample parking is available. I understand you can still purchase planks if you are interested. The minimum donation is $70.00 for up to 15-letter/space/symbol and board and $150.00 for a sixteen to twenty five-letter/space symbol board. I have much more information if you check out the link I have set up at the top of the page. Just click on the page TITLE Sandwich Boardwalk and you will get the web page for the Town of Sandwich and there you can get all the information you will need on the boardwalk and much more on the whole Town. For anyone who gets to visit the boardwalk I hope you will enjoy it as much as we have. Also check out all the many other places of interest the town has to offer.
This is what the planks look like if you wish to donate and help with the upkeep and maintenance.
This is the view when you exit the beach going back to the
parking area.
