Renting Kayaks on Lake Woodlands! One The Woodlands newest amenities!
Everytime I drive over Lake Woodlands with my kids, they have been asking to kayak Lake Woodlands and explore the lake!
We started out at Riva Row Boat House, they provided life jackets and our choice of single or tandem kayaks.
(make sure you have a hat and / or plenty of suncreen! Water and snacks)
It took awhile for everyone to get the whole rowing thing down!
We got to enjoy some local wildlife, a heron bird was nearby.
Next we had to decide if we wanted to go the huge water fountain or the dragon, located at Southshore Park, on Lake Woodlands.
The kids wanted to get misted by the fountain.
Then we went towards Northshore Park to see the ducks and fishermen!
Then we headed back towards Riva Row Boathouse ...
We had a sooo much fun and we all agreed that next time we go kayaking we need to go out for atleast 2-3 hours so we have enough time to go to both Northshore Park and Southshore Park.
