Kanawha Canal Paddle!

James River Park System • TBA RichmondVA  23225 Organized by Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation

About this event


Join us paddling on the Historic Kanawha Canal in Richmond. Use Sit-on-Top kayaks for this exploratory journey on the first commercial canal system in the country that has been vacated for decades. The instructors cover basic paddling technique, safety, and canal history for this step back in time. Renting provides all needed equipment. Minimum age is 11. Youth ages 11-13 must be accompanied by an actively participating adult. Max weight of 235 lbs. due to kayak limitations.

If a craft other than a Sit-on-Top kayak is desired, please contact Greg Velzy directly. 728-1124 or Velzyg@Chesterfield.gov
