Things to remember!


  • An approved life jacket must be worn at all times while boating within the city limits.
  • A bailer or sponge, rescue throw line, 2 paddles and a whistle are required by law.      We also recommend a spare paddle.
  • Be prepared for cold water immersion! Bring extra clothes in a water proof bag. Wear a wetsuit when immersion is more likely.
  • Bring drinking water snacks and lunch, sun protection and wind and rain protection.
  • Stay close to shore when lake paddling. The wind can pick up without warning.
  • Stay alert at all times. Watch for rocks. Trees over and under river (sweepers and strainers) shallow sections, bridge abutments and river braiding.
  • Tell someone where you are going, and when you expect to return.
  • Inflatable rafts are not permitted on the Glenmore Reservoir.

Please have fun and play safe.
