The City of Kenmore is partnering with the Kenmore Waterfront Activities Center at Squire’s Landing Park to provide recreational paddling programs for the public. The city’s newly-acquired park property on the calm Sammamish River is an ideal location for all paddlers, especially youth and beginners.
No experience is required and scholarships are available for low-income youth.

Competitive programs are also available. Paddling classes and programs for adults are also available.
“Canoe and kayak paddling is so good for the mind and body. There’s nothing like being up close and personal with the water while at the same time getting some really good exercise,” said Dan Henderson, head coach for KWAC’s canoe and kayak programs.
