Free Paddle Board Event

Chehalem Park and Recreation District thinks you can walk on water. . . or at least we'll help you feel like you can.

Try our new paddle boards for FREE on Saturday, July 7, 2012
CPRD's Chehalem Paddle Launch at 3100 SE 8th St. in Dundee is a great place to inexpensively rent a kayak or canoe on the summer weekends. We have added three new paddle boards to the options. Stop by between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on July 7th and try a paddle board for free for 15 minutes. Our staff will get you suited and instructed - beginners welcome!

Now for the fine print: Launch operation is weather dependent. Paddle boards are based on availability of both boards and staff.
