Please join us for an early morning paddle on the Chattahoochee River.  We’ll head up river this time starting from the Azalea Boat Launch, winding our way along the upriver side of the Roswell Riverwalk boardwalk, underneath the bridge at Roswell Road, past Don White Park and the underpass park at GA-400 and up to the shoals sandbar near Island Ford  before turning around and paddling downstream back to our starting point.  You never know what you'll see along the river (deer, otters, turtles, wildflowers, or just the gently flowing stream), but it's bound to be a beautiful way to start the day. 

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.
