Wednesday Paddle - Azalea Park (No. 3)

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Hi All... When first started paddling, I used to like to go for some late afternoon or evening paddles from Azalea Park in Roswell. Scheduling one for this Wednesday and see who'd like to join, maybe making it a recurring event.  Meet to take a midweek break, swap lies (as Glen likes to say), maybe even swap boats a little for the curious...at 6:30 pm.  Boats in the water by 6:45.  Will go upstream two miles or so and turn around, getting back to launch site a little after sunset.  Plan on BRINGING your PFD's...told was required to have one in boat, but wasn't required to wear it.     My cell:[masked] 0177.

    Might be a little confusing to some first time...a lot of activity and little places all along Azalea.   If use GPS, meet in the relatively big parking lot very near the street address above; a boat ramp there and parking spaces for vehicles with trailers.

    p.s.   The "not attending" list intended is for those that originally RSVP Yes but change to No.  If you don't RSVP Yes, please, I assume you are not going.

    Hated to hear the news about the river. Hope it clears by next week.
    Will keep a look out for the next gathering. Thanks Joe for the info.

    Canceling this Wednesday's paddle. On news tonight was a bacteria warning by River Keepers ("Don't touch the water") for the Chattahoochie River, estimated to be 20 to 40 times over what the EPA considers safe. Because of all the rain and flooding, it's caused overflow from sewer and septic systems. Also, high volume water makes paddling upstream difficult. We'll try again next week.

    I would love to make this hike if traffiic will allow. Not sure where this location is but I'm coming from Sandy Springs. It's been a while since I've had my boat in the water but looking forward to getting back to paddling. Do y'all welcome newbies? :)

      Kim, yes, welcome! If you're coming up north on 9/Roswell Rd, at the first light after you cross the river, take a left at Azalea (the signpost going to the right will say Riverside Rd). Then 8/10 of mile turn left into parking lot.

      Great, thanks Joe. Unless I have trouble with the traffic from work, I plan on being there. Looking forward to meeting some paddling buddies. I've missed it.

    It's supposed to be beautiful Wednesday evening, coming off a high of 79 for the day. Looking forward to it!

    NOTE: meetup time has changed to 6:30, hopefully helping out with work and traffic. Boats in water by 6:45. That still gives time to paddle two miles upstream (for those inclined) and back by about 8:15.
