Alder Creek Spring Paddle Festival Demo Day

Want to try out the latest boats and paddling accessories?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Whether you're a beginner or an expert, everyone will enjoy the free paddling clinics that are going on during the day, and of course you can try any of the 100+ boats that are on the beach!

They will also have SUP's available for use.

 

Alder Creek will provide the boats, Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs) and paddles. All you need to bring (or wear) is any clothing you don't mind getting wet. They also suggest you bring a snack and water, as food may not be available in the park. The event is free, but parking at the park is $ 3!

The following items are also important when planning a day on the water:

Lightweight windbreaker and sun hat
Fleece top (just in case!)
Sandals and paddling footwear
Sunglasses
Sunscreen
Dry change of clothes

Towel

Alder Creek staff will be available throughout the day to assist in foot peg adjustment, boat entry and exit, beach launch and landing, and basic paddle strokes!

    Did everyone receive the update email I had send out on Friday? It had my contact info, and the meeting spot! I was where I said I would be, and some of you were able to meetup with me.

      I saw your meetup sign and barely recognized you in your suit. Were you doing rolls dressed like that? There were two people at the table when I walked by to the bathrooms.

    Vancouver Park & Rec is indeed no longer charging for parking! There will be a vendor at the Park that will be mainly selling BBQ items, and drinks!

    Hi Peter,

    This is just an FYI. Clark County Regional Parks are no longer charging parking fees. Also, there will be no food at the park, but restrooms are open. I know this because I'm a competitive rower and row on Vancouver Lake. This morning a boat clinic was very slow to begin. Have fun!
