Saturday, Oct 3, 10am-2pm. Guided Paddle of the Lower River from the NEW Petten St. Dock
Thirteen paddlers joined Genesee RiverWatch and the Genesee Waterways Center for a guided paddle on the Lower Genesee on Saturday Oct 3. The paddlers left from and returned to, the brand new, ADA compliant, canoe and kayak dock at the foot of Petten Street. They enjoyed a rare, water-level view of Turning Point Park and Rochester’s unique “wilderness in the city” on a crisp, sunny morning with the beginnings of fall colors along the gorge walls. Guides described the history of the Lower Genesee, including its role as a lake port and terminus of the Underground Railway. Thanks to all who came!
