Please join us for an almost sunset paddle on the Chattahoochee River now that the time has changed and darkness reigns (grin).  Yes, I know.  We’re starting at 1pm, but doesn’t it almost seem like sunset already?


We’ll head down river from the Azalea Boat Launch, winding our way along the river side of the Roswell Riverwalk boardwalk, waving at any hikers who might be wandering on the Gold Branch trails, paddling just past Morgan Falls Overlook Park to get a glimpse of the dam before turning around and paddling back upstream to our starting point.  This is an exploratory paddle, so we will adjust our route as needed based on river conditions and timing.  We should get back to the launch point just prior to sunset (grin again) so hopefully we’ll have some beautiful evening views along the river. 

Required Items to Bring:

BYOB (bring your own Boat… kayak or canoe)* and paddle

PFD (personal floatation device) is required and must be worn while on the water.


Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.


Rescue Rope Throw Bag

Bilge Pump or sponge


Sunscreen, hat

How to Get There:
Event Directions:
Azalea Park is located at 205 Azalea Drive, Roswell, GA 30075 and is across the street from The Atlanta Rowing Club and just east of Shoot the Hooch (203 Azalea Drive).


Parking is free.  If the lot is full, you can drop your boat off and then park on the street.

*This paddle is mostly flat water.  We suggest slightly longer boats (9’ and up) since they will be faster and easier to paddle especially back upstream.
