Choose your own adventure at the Boathouse District

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, May 1, 2018 at 12:00:00 am
Flat water kayaking

The Oklahoma River has the ultimate comeback story—all you need to do is look at the Boathouse District for tangible proof. What is now the glittering jewel of Oklahoma City’s outdoor recreation offering used to be a dry riverbed that required periodic mowing. Today, the Boathouse District is home to an Olympic training venue for rowing and canoe/kayak and the only permanently lit paddle sport racing course in the world, but even beginners and casual athletes can enjoy the facility through corporate rowing leagues and rowing classes.

If you want to get on the water, the Boathouse District offers flatwater kayaking and stand up paddle board rentals and a Learn to Row program that will teach you how to scull and sweep in only one month. But if you prefer to climb to new heights instead, the Boathouse District can also oblige with the Rumble Drop or SandRidge Sky Trail, the tallest adventure course of its kind in the world! Both the 700-foot zip line across the Oklahoma River and the 72-foot sky slide from atop the sky trail will make you feel like a kid again. There is even a youth zone for the kiddos. And certainly anyone who appreciates the great outdoors will love the 13 miles of scenic trails that meander along the Oklahoma River.

The easiest way to take in everything the district has to offer is through the RIVERSPORT Pass, which includes RIVERSPORT Rapids, Love’s tubing and river boarding, plus all land and flatwater adventures in the Boathouse District, at Lake Overholser and at Lake Hefner. No matter your activity level, the Oklahoma River and the Boathouse District are sure to have something for you to enjoy.
