Just in time for the holidays, Kent Parks and Recreation sent word out that their 2011 canoe/kayak river access projects are finished.
I know the temperatures seem a bit chilly but actually the water levels at this time of the year can make for some great paddling.
However, getting in and out of the river in the winter is usually a little trickier (and the stakes are a little higher in the event of a slip, trip or fall) but thanks to the new projects being done, putting in and taking out of the river has never been easier or safer.
So grab your wet weather gear and a friend with a paddle and head out for some great river recreation in Kent.
The Parks Director put together a photo chronology for the two river access projects; one in downtown Kent around the Kent Dam, and the other out at Riverbend that I thought you’d fiind interesting.
