The Friends of Broad Ripple Park, in partnership with Friends of the White River, hosted 90 novice paddlers for our second annual Family Floats event at the boat ramp! Volunteers coordinated and led paddle trips up and down river along the park waterfront and we saw lots of big smiles from our participants. We also welcomed guests that included the Hoosier Canoe & Kayak Club (with their nicely-done scale model of a lowhead dam), the Indianapolis Fire Department Station 14 Water Rescue Tact Team, and BRICS Ice Cream. We offer a big thank you to all who helped!
