“To inspire community members to protect the Tualatin River, we first must make them aware of the river.”

From Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend, paddlers can explore the lazy flowing Tualatin River at their own pace. Friday through Sunday, and Monday Holidays, canoes, single kayaks, tandem kayaks, and stand up paddle boards (SUPs) are available for rent on a first-come, first-serve basis from 9 am - 6 pm. Our paddling season will kick off with Cook Park Boat Rentals opening on Friday May 24th at 9am! Happy Paddling.
