In 2011, the Los Angeles Conservation Corps, along with its partners formed the Paddle the LA River pilot program. We received a license to operate the first non-motorized boating pilot program on the Los Angeles River at the Sepulveda Recreation Basin. For the past six seasons, we have been providing this service to LA residents who seek a unique kayaking experience.
Kayakers will journey down a 1.5-mile stretch of the natural bottom portion of the Los Angeles River located in the San Fernando Valley within the Sepulveda Basin. We will offer kayak rentals and private group tours on select Saturdays each month, starting on Saturday, June 3 and will run through Saturday, September 16.
