Whether you want to train like an Olympian or just have some fun, the Boathouse District along the Oklahoma River is a hotspot for outdoor recreation. Located within walking distance of the Bricktown Entertainment District, it’s the official U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Site for rowing and canoe/kayak and hosts numerous regattas throughout the year.
Get on the water with a RIVERSPORT Adventure Pass
This day pass will allow you to sample all the activities offered at the Boathouse District, including canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and more. The Boathouse District also offers more than 13 miles of paved trails for running, walking or cycling for those who prefer to stay on land.
Enjoy an aquatic adventure at the RIVERSPORT Rapids
Opening in May 2016, this state-of-the-art whitewater rafting and kayaking facility will be geared for both family fun and elite athlete training. Lower flow channels will offer great family rafting and kayaking experiences, and the higher flow channels will allow Olympic whitewater athletes the chance to train in Oklahoma City. No matter your athletic ability, this course is a must-see OKC experience.
Climb to new heights on the SandRidge Sky Trail
This 80-foot structure is the tallest adventure course of its kind in the world. With six levels of challenges, the higher you climb, the harder it gets! From the top, you can speed down the 72-foot Sky Slide – America’s tallest dry slide – or free fall from the Rumble Drop. The Sky Trail also includes the SandRidge Sky Zip, a 700-foot zip line across the Oklahoma River and back.
