Parks and Rec bringing new kayak program to Waynesboro

By  | 

WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- People tried out kayaking on Waynesboro, part of the new "Paddle The Park" and Waynesboro Water Trail programs.

Stephanie Seltzer with the Waynesboro Parks and Rec said both programs will allow people to get out and experience the river in a new way, while also learning how to do it on their own.

"We've already kind of done the scouting for you. So we know where the rapids are, we know where there might be some issues and we can steer you and direct you around those," said Seltzer. "The other important thing is to always wear your personal flotation device."

The Waynesboro Water Trail will start June 17th at Ridgeview Park.

The Paddle The Park will start June 18th at 1 p.m. at Ridgeview Park.
