The Rivanna Renaissance Conference and River Celebration are coming up on September 29th and September 30th.

On Saturday, September 30th, we are providing free shuttle service from Riverview Park to Darden Towe Park throughout the day. Whether you are a walker checking out the FLOW Art Festival or a boater participating in the Boat Parade, you can depart by land or water from Darden Towe knowing that you and your boat can get a ride back from Riverview (up until 3 pm). We will also be renting equipment at discount rates to those who need a kayak or canoe to participate in the day. Please make a reservation by clicking here. 

On Sunday, October 1st from 9 AM to 12 noon we will be offering one last chance to purchase our lightly used Kayaks, Paddles, PFDs and more. Click here for details and pricing. 

Saturday, September 16th was the last day of our regular 2017 river season. Thanks to all our customers, staff, and community partners for another great year! We will open for the spring in late April, and look forward to getting you on the water then!
