CANCELLED - RIVERFEST CANOE FLOAT SCIOTO RIVER

We regretfully announce that the Riverfest Paddle on the Scioto River has been cancelled. Due to the significant amounts of rain Central Ohio received over the last week, the water level in the Scioto River will be too high to safely paddle.


Saturday, June 21, 2014
10AM
Scioto River at Glick Park
6011 Glick Road
Powell, OH 43065

Have you ever driven along Riverside Drive catching brief glimpses of the Scioto and wondered what it really was like along the water? Then come join us as part of Riverfest On Tour! for an exploratory paddle of the Scioto River from Glick Park, just south of O’Shaughnessy Dam, to Dublin Springs Park at Bridge Street in Dublin. Participants will explore approximately four miles of this free flowing gem in our backyard. Learn about the City of Dublin’s efforts to increase people’s access to the river and how they work to keep the water clean even as the city experiences rapid growth. Find out what you can do to help protect this beautiful river that provides drinking water to hundreds of thousands in Central Ohio.

Riverfest On Tour! aims to educate the public about the vital role waterways play in the region. Riverfest activities are free of charge. For more information visit our Riverfest event page.
