Update: As of August 20th, there are no Park kayaks available to borrow for either the morning or afternoon session. Please feel free to ask to be placed on the waiting list. Call 215-862-2021 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Your chances are excellent.
Discover and enjoy the Delaware Canal from a new vantage point – in the water. This paddling adventure will start at the Black Rock Road Picnic Area, located at the intersection of the Canal and Black Rock Road in Yardley, PA 19067.
Delaware Canal State Park Educator Katie Martens will lead the paddle, which will venture south through the Canal wide-waters. Wildlife abounds in this area today, but for 100 years mule-drawn boats laden with coal used the wide-waters as a place to pull off out of the main stream of Canal traffic.
Paddlers may bring their own kayaks or canoes and personal floatation devices, or they may borrow the equipped kayaks that the State Park will have on site. There will be 16 seats available in 12 single kayaks and 2 tandem kayaks. They will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis, so register early for this popular activity. Registration is required no later than October 15. Please do so by contacting the Friends at 215-862-2021 or email@example.com. A $10 donation, payable on the day of the paddle, is requested if participants use State Park kayaks.
Autumn fun on the Canal!
