Why travel far for an outdoor adventure when you can experience nature in an urban environment right in your own backyard? The Paddle in the City series is brought to you by HERO USA in partnership with the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department.

Beginning in August 2017, HERO USA will be offering weekly guided kayak, canoe and SUP paddles and classes down some of the most scenic portions of the Scioto River. All guides are American Canoe Association certified instructors. Participants receive a quick-start to paddling safety course prior to hitting the water. Once afloat, HERO instructors guide participants down river while teaching skills development and nature education.
