Update June 26: 

The Paddle Station is now open for the 2020 season!

Temporary closure: Boating advisory issued for Calgary’s rivers on June 25, 2020

The City of Calgary is again issuing a boating advisory for the Bow and Elbow Rivers due to higher expected flow rates. Calgarians are advised against boating and all other watercraft activities on the Elbow and Bow Rivers during this time.

No flooding over riverbanks is expected, however, flows on the Bow and Elbow are expected to increase significantly due to anticipated precipitation. This will make conditions on and near the rivers more dangerous.

Members of Calgary Fire Department Aquatics Team will be monitoring the rivers while the advisory is in place. The City advises everyone to stay off the Elbow and Bow Rivers until conditions return to lower levels and the advisory is lifted.

More information on water safety can be found here.

"Because of Paddle Station, I was out on the river a few times this summer. It was glorious. This is the perfect solution for someone interested in occasionally (or even regularly) getting out on the river who does not want the expense and hassle of buying, storing and transporting a kayak. So easy, so fun, such great staff."
