Milwaukee River Romp: Canoe and Kayak Event

Check-in: 10:00 am   Event End: 1:00pm
Location Start and Finish: Kiwanis Landing at Turtle Park,
River Revitalization Foundation
2134 N. Riverboat Rd., Milwaukee 53212

We'd love for you to join us as we paddle from Kiwanis Landing at Turtle Park (adjacent to River Revitalization Foundation offices) downtown to Pere Marquette Park, and back, enjoying a lovely Sunday morning on the water, see the greenway and its shoreline restoration projects and the downtown Riverwalk all in one outing!

This inaugural event is in celebration of River Revitalization Foundation's upcoming 25th Anniversary (in 2019) and our founders: Kiwanis Club and Rotary Club of Milwaukee. For this years' event, we have chosen a selected group to participate (YOU!) to "test the waters" for a larger event next year. Opportunities for sponsorship of next years' event are available now, so please come on down and get your feet wet!

A suggested donation of $30.00 per participant this year will cover our costs and any proceeds will benefit River Revitalization Foundation and Kiwanis Club of Milwaukee Foundation. We encourage you to bring your own kayak or, if you need to borrow a kayak, Milwaukee Kayak Company (a sponsor of this event) is donating kayaks to those in need on a first-reservation basis.  A limited quantity is available so register early.

Upon arrival at this event, volunteers and staff from Milwaukee Kayak Company will outfit you with the proper kayak, life jacket and paddle. They will also provide a brief paddling lesson before you launch.

After the Romp, enjoy a picnic in Turtle Park; reserve your box lunch for $6.00 on the registration form (or pack  your own). Lunch orders will be available for you after you return to the starting point, Kiwanis Landing.

Please join us! For more information feel free to call 414-271-8000. See you in June.

Happy paddling!
