Kayaks, Paddle Boards & Fishing

Kayaks & Paddle Boards

Kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding are popular activities at the Anne Springs Close Greenway. 

Make an advanced reservation for your next water activity. Kayaks and paddleboards are distributed on a first-come basis for those who have registered in advance, and members receive a discount.
