Outdoor Adventure Program Coordinator
Paddling season may be several months away, but Metro Parks is gearing up for expanded paddling opportunities later this year. Brand new for 2022, there will be tandem kayaks available for summer Outdoor Adventure paddling programs!
Tandem kayaks are great options for families and friends to paddle together, as their longer and wider size can help you feel more stable on the water. They’re so easy to use, that a passenger won’t necessarily need to paddle, as long as they’re sitting up front and the paddler is in the back.
Our experienced Outdoor Adventure team members will show you paddling basics to ensure you have a fun time in nature while out on the lake or river, and equipment and instruction are provided during these fun and free programs.
The only items you need to bring are a water bottle, sunscreen and water wicking clothing, and a go-with-the-flow vibe. Interested in becoming a frequent paddler? A pro-tip from the Metro Parks Outdoor Adventure team are to invest in a comfortable life jacket and a dry bag to keep personal items safe and dry, and from floating away.
Whether you’re interested in a solo kayak trip, tandem kayaks, canoes or stand-up paddleboards, all await you this summer with Metro Parks Outdoor Adventure.
We can’t wait to see you on the water at Metro Parks!
