Two-Part Canoe Adventure: Let's Go Canoeing
Wednesday, July 17, 2019
After we are inspired by Marilyn and Don’s adventure, we’ll have our own chance to take to the river! Kayaks and canoes will be available for the trip through Rivertown Adventures. (rivertownadventures.com)
“You’ll start your self-guided adventure at the Lansing City Market in downtown Lansing. River Town staff will help you into the river across from the beautifully restored Ottawa Power Station and from there it’s up to you. Upstream you’ll find Cherry Hill Park under the towering bridges of I496, just past that is the confluence of the Grand and Red Cedar Rivers. If you choose to start by going downstream you’ll float past Adado Riverfront Park, home of Common Ground and numerous other summer festivals. As you move past the park you’ll start to hear the rumble of the Old Town Dam.” – From the Rivertown Adventures website. Register by July 10.
