Ceyana Canoe Club

Drop-in Paddling

We are continuing to limit member and public paddling at our Tuesday evening Rundle Park Paddling Centre for August and September we will do this by limiting access to just 40 participants. There is no longer online registration.

Rundle Park Pond (see location map)

At the Rundle Park Paddling Centre, we have access to 20+ kayaks (rec whitewater, and rec lake water) over 20 canoes (tandem, and solo), Stand Up Paddleboards (SUPs) and all the necessary paddles, PFDs, bailers and throwbags... and all just three steps from the water!

Rundle Park Paddling Sessions commence by early June and we paddle through to late September. Informal instruction is available at these sessions. Members can start at 6:50 PM. Public is welcome to try paddling at 7:20 PM. By the third session, participants need to have a club membership. 

The club DOES NOT paddle at RPPC on the Tuesdays after the Canada Day, August Civic Holiday and Labour Day weekends.

To volunteer at the Centre or if you have questions, ask our RPPC Coordinator.

North Saskatchewan Fitness Paddles at Buena Vista Park

Our Big Canoe Fitness paddling have started, next paddle is July 8th. For 2021 this program will paddle out of our new facility next to the EWP Boat house in Buena Vista Park, just north of the Rowing Club.  Participants will paddle voyageur boats on the North Saskatchewan River, you need not know a lot about paddling the big canoes to join, just be prepared to work hard. Register for the Big Canoe Fitness Paddles event which will enroll you for all Thursday evening sessions. Darryl, the leader, will be in contact you regularly to confirm attendance, or non-attendance, once these sessions commence. You must be a member of the club to register.

Thursday Evening River Paddling at Buena Vista Park

Now that we once again have our equipment stored next to the river... we hope to commence with biweekly river paddling sessions.  These will be easy sessions, mostly involving an upstream stretch of paddling (how the voyageurs got to Edmonton!) with a leisurely drift back down to the boathouses. 

Club canoes and kayaks and related gear will be available for members to use.  We will have a volunteer member or two to help coordinate folk, and make sure everyone gets back safely and on time.  We are asking participants to register (no charge) so that we can control the group size and anticipate needs prior to everyone's arrival.  Members are welcome to bring their own boats and gear, and may choose to put in at the Laurier Park boat launch and float down to the start, or to roll their boats into the boathouses for the 7:00 PM meet. 

First session will be July 15 and we'll try to schedule these for about every two weeks depending on leadership availability (volunteers needed!). 

Please come prepared for the expected weather, a possible swim, and fluids for refreshment... and best all in a dry bag.

Please register for these events on these links:  July 15, July 29, Aug. 5, Aug. 19 (Liver on the River), Aug. 26, & Sept. 9.  Registration will open 13 days prior.
