Happy About Kayaking
I’m so happy about the new program of free kayaking that started this summer, but evidently, the word isn’t yet out. I keep telling people about it, and no one seems to realize – we finally have access to the bay, finally get to use the OTHER body of water we all live near, and it’s free, kid friendly and super fun.
The program is run by the Parks Department out of Riis Landing (where the ferries come in, right next to Roxbury), and on Saturdays and Sundays, you can just walk up and request a kayak from 10-4. There are rangers, lifeguards, life jackets, instructions and plenty of kayaks for everyone. There are other times as well – the schedule is posted there. Go take a look!
I really want this program to take off. We finally have access to the bay, it’s free, and we need to use it. Spread the word.
