The Marion County Parks and Recreation Department’s popular monthly kayaking program is set to return next month with a trip down the Tomoka River Paddling Trail.
The event, which is part of the Kayak & Koffee series, will be held on Saturday, August 13. Participants will meet at Brick City Adventure Park (1211 SE 22nd Road in Ocala) at 7:45 a.m., and transportation will then be provided to the event.
After enjoying coffee and light refreshments, the participating kayakers will enjoy a scenic ride on the river. The event is open to anyone ages 15 and up, and beginners are welcome.
There is a $50 fee per participant, and all kayaks and gear will be provided. The fee will be lowered to $25 for any participants who bring their own kayak equipment.
Everyone is encouraged to bring bug spray, sunscreen, and a bottle of water. Weather-appropriate clothing and a hat are also recommended.
