Frequently Asked Questions
Location: Our Boating Centre is located at Creekside Community Centre, 1 Athletes Way, Vancouver, at the foot of Ontario Street, just south of Science World. If you are taking transit, Science World/Main Street is the nearest stop.
Parking: There is free street parking in the area and there is pay parking underground for $3 flat rate for the night.
Your Belongings: There are lockers in the community centre and you can borrow a lock at the front desk or you can bring your own, but if possible, it would be best to leave your valuables at home as there are more people registered than there are lockers.
Clothing: We suggest layering your clothing so that you can peel layers off as you warm up and you will get wet.
Clothing might include:
» Dri fit long sleeve if cool, short sleeve if warm
» A shell jacket
» Hat or cap
» Quick dry shorts, board shorts
» A pair of shell pants
» An old pair of runners (did we mention you’ll get wet?)
Some people wear bicycling gloves and some wear neoprene gloves.
There is also a shower and bathrooms close by if you want to change after paddling.
Please come a little early so that you’re ready to paddle on time.
