On October 16, 2016, the new launch located at the east end of Constant's Wharf off East Constance Road was officially opened. Nearby, an informational kiosk proclaims the location as part of the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail and gives information on the history of the Nansemond River. The canoe and kayak launch cost about $165,200 in local funding. The kiosk, as well as waterproof maps of the area, were produced through a partnership with the Nansemond River Preservation Alliance, Suffolk River Heritage and the National Park Service, which administers the Captain John Smith Trail.
