Marion County Parks and Rec to host romantic kayaking event on Valentine’s Day

The Marion County Parks and Recreation Department will host a romantic kayaking event for local couples on Valentine’s Day, and registration is now open.

On Tuesday, February 14, at 5:30 p.m., participating couples will meet at KP Hole Park located at 9435 SW 190th Avenue Road in Dunnellon. The kayaks will then launch off the boat ramp at 6 p.m. for a two-hour ride along the scenic Rainbow River.

“This is a unique approach to date night complete with starry skies and kayaks illuminated with romantic lights,” stated the Marion County Parks and Recreation Department on its Facebook page.

Once the couples have returned to land, they will be treated to pizza and sparkling grape juice.

Limited spots are available and there is a cost of $50 per couple to participate. The event is for adults only (ages 18 and up).

For more information, or to register, visit the Marion County Parks and Recreation Department’s “Valentine’s Day Moonlight Paddle” event webpage or call 352-671-8560.
