Kayak in Paradise

Free Kayak Launch

A handicap accessible kayak launch is now open at the park for non-motorized vessels! Bring your kayak or canoe and explore our 11 acres of restored wetlands, opening into Paradise Creek. You’ll need to carry your vessel a short distance from the far end of the parking lot. Or join us for a guided paddle in our kayaks!
