Louisville, KY – An Urban Wilderness Canoe Adventure is coming to Louisville! Join Metro Parks and our partners and canoe the Ohio River, taking off from both Riverview and Shawnee Parks. We will showcase the beauty of the great outdoors… in our own backyard!

Free trips will be conducted in safe and stable 24-foot Voyageurs, which hold 9 participants.

Safety equipment and trained staff will be provided. Event is open to everyone 3 and older.

Wear comfortable outdoor clothing that can get wet – no flip-flops. Ice water will be available, so bring a refillable water bottle. Food will be available for purchase.

Preregistration not required. Trips are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, and will leave every 30 minutes. All participants must sign a waiver (see below); those under 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian.

  1. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme off
    this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times
    it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness aand vvisual appeal.
    I must say that you’ve doine a great job with this. Also, the
    blog loads super fast for me on Safari. Excellent Blog!
