Please join us for an evening paddle on the Chattahoochee River.  We’ll head onto the river from the Azalea Boat Launch for a couple of hours or so of paddling.  Ready to mix it up?  Depending on water levels, we may head upstream for a change and check out Vickery Creek or head up to the GA 400 bridge before heading back downstream toward the start.  Or we might go the more recent route, heading downstream along the river side of the Roswell Riverwalk boardwalk, waving at any hikers who might be wandering on the Gold Branch trails, paddling down to the cliffs before turning around and paddling back upstream 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 sunset part of 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.
