Growing up in East Tennessee where lakes and rivers were abundant I used to love to canoe. I was so excited to hear recently that now I can canoe right here in my neighborhood of Southtown. In early August the San Antonio River Authority dropped its requirement that permits are needed to paddle on two parts of the River Walk Expansion. One can now paddle in the King William section and in the Eagleland section in Southtown.
You may also see me driving around with the canoe strapped to the roof of my Xterra as I can now also paddle in Woodlawn Lake, South Side Lions Park, Miller’s Pond, and Elmendorf Lake.
So next time you’re out at Academy Sports buy yourself a canoe and join me. I can’t think of a more peaceful way to end a day than canoeing and taking in the views of the King William homes from the river.
Here’s the link to the information on the San Antonio River Authority’s website:
