This is the second time in 3 seasons Boating in DC has extended their season at Thompson which is located in Foggy Bottom.

Outside the District

There are still a few places outside of the District to rent a kayak on a beautiful, unseasonably warm November weekend.

Fountainhead Regional Park in Fairfax County is scheduled to be open through November 11. Annapolis Canoe and Kayak has year-round rentals though a wetsuit or drysuit is required as the water gets colder.

Bladensburg Waterfront Park may be open even though they officially closed on Sunday.

Kayak cleanups

Four Mile Run Conservatory Foundation Kayak Cleainup

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Would you like to kayak in November and also support a worthy cause? The Four Mile Run Conservatory Foundation has three more scheduled kayak cleanups for 2022:

  • Sunday, November 6, 9:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, November 19, 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Registration is free – I participated the last two years and enjoyed both the stewardship and the kayaking. Unfortunately, Four Mile Run can use all the help. Nevertheless, this is a fun way to help make the community a better place.

Sign-ups are open 2-4 weeks prior to each scheduled event.

Nowhere else has so much kayaking information in one place as!
