Join the Hopewell Downtown Partnership on Saturday, May 6th for Hopewell’s first-ever Community Paddle Day at the Riverwalk at City Park with RVA Paddlesports, Beyond Boundaries, Boys to Men, FOLAR and Hopewell Recreation Parks! Scroll down to pre-register and reserve your time (1-4pm available) and boat in advance.
This is an opportunity for you to experience one of the biggest sources of fun that our city has to offer – water recreation. Our outdoor rec experts will offer a variety of free paddling experiences appropriate for all ages and skill levels, to increase diversity in the sport, and to promote inclusivity in the paddlesports community here in Hopewell.
We will have kayaks, SUPS, & rafts for people to try out as well as a food truck, vendors and music. The ART on the Appomattox River Trail (ART) project will also be celebrating their Sturgeon Sculpture project.
Walk-ups also welcome. If you have your own vessel, you are welcome to bring it but please let our experts direct you so that we don’t have a traffic jam!
Don’t forget to wear clothes and shoes that can get wet or a little dirty, sunscreen and a water bottle!
