This summer, we are a proud supporter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. Find out more about their future fundraising MS bike rides by clicking here.

On summer weekdays, you can enjoy our Happy Hour on the river. In other words, you drift through the downtown river valley, take your mind off the job and watch the sunset over Edmonton.

No paddling experience is necessary. You quickly learn how to steer your canoe or single kayak and, in addition, the current takes you downstream.

Furthermore, you can bring your own private canoe or kayak and we shuttle you and your boat up the river. From there you follow the current back to your parked vehicle.
