July 18 Public Paddle postponed to August 1
Because of the heavy rains last night and the combined sewer overflow, we are postponing the Public Paddle to August 1.
On Sunday, August 1, come join us in sit-on-top kayaks to explore the waters of North Brooklyn and learn about their history and ecology.
This year’s remaining schedule (subject to change; please check our Calendar of Events):
- Sunday, August 15, 12-4 PM: Sit-on-top kayaks
Public paddles are free and open to everyone. We especially hope to welcome our Greenpoint neighbors and members of other community organizations. Come down to the park and talk to your neighbors. Together, let’s learn more about Greenpoint’s history, environmental challenges and successes, and residents. Get out on the water and see the neighborhood as you never have before!
Our public paddles are child and pet friendly (kayaks have a height minimum of 4′ 10″ and no pets on board, although both children and pets are welcome in the boatyard!) Check our website in the morning in case of inclement weather.
¡La temporada 2021 arranca con un Pádel Público! Los Public Paddles son el corazón del North Brooklyn Community Boathouse, una oportunidad para mostrarle a la comunidad que las aguas nos pertenecen a todos y ayudar a nuestros amigos y vecinos a encontrar la misma alegría en el remo que todos conocemos.
Los viajes duran 30 minutos y utilizarán kayaks con capacidad para uno o dos personas. Hay un requisito de altura mínima de 4’10 ” para garantizar que el kayak se mantenga equilibrado. Sin minimos de talla para las canoas.
Las mascaras son necesarias si no esta vacunado.
We can’t wait to see you!
NBCB sincerely thanks the Greenpoint Community Environment Fund and the Office of the New York State Attorney General and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation for financial support for our Public Paddle series.
