They will shuttle you up to a very spacious nice boat ramp at the nearby RiverView park for put-in and then pick you up from Dudley Landing boat ramp. If you don't wish to pay for shuttle. You can reach the river from any part of the park, that runs all along the river. Dudleys landing as well as an unnamed boat ramp near the community garden are all along the park and have drive up access. See their website for prices: https://newriveradventure.org/ It's not listed on there, but they charged me 10$ for shuttle when I went Friday 6/1. There has also been Benny Marconi Pizza available for purchase from shelter 3. Bring food if you like, for grilling, etc. There are water fountains and vending machines located nearby.

What we're about

This group is for all age groups 18 and over. No pictures or any of that nonsense is necessary. If you have a kayak, or are going to get a kayak, or are just mildly interested in kayaking, this group is for you. We will meet at the water at the events, talk about boating, and then just get in the water and go. We will have different locations for our meets depending on what our members suggest. Very much a warm water event, our members should share their experiences and coach new kayak(ers?) Experience not necessary, kayak ownership not necessary, just join and talk in our discussions. Our discussions will revolve in topics such as : "latest deals found, new or used", "kayak techniques", what to bring "floating", or anything else about this wonderful water sport. Hopefully we will encourage some of our more "experienced" members to be helpers/guides/tutors. If you are an amateur kayak(ist), don't be afraid. If you have never been in one before, come and try one out. We will talk about boat safety, survival techniques, and various and sundry other topics under the sun. Put down that stupid "smart phone" and pick up a paddle and meet us at the water.
