Westfield River Canoe & Kayak Cruise

June 8 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT

Paddlers will be treated to unique vistas of the Westfield River at the annual Westfield River Watershed Association Canoe and Kayak Cruise. This leisurely six-mile paddle from the Great River Bridge in Westfield to Robinson State Park in Agawam reveals a river so special that parts of it are designated Wild & Scenic by the US Congress. Members of the Association lead the group through the lower watershed past former industrial sites and restored riparian areas that are once again teaming with fish and wildlife. Bald eagles, blue herons, beavers, otters, red tailed hawks and snapping turtles are likely to be seen.


The event begins at 9AM at the corner of Meadow and Elm Streets in Westfield and concludes at approximately 2PM in Robinson State Park in Agawam.

The participation fee of $15.00 per person ($10 for members) helps cover shuttle service, insurance and light refreshments.  Registration begins at 9 AM in the municipal parking lot off Meadow Street near the Great River Bridge in Westfield.  Participants will register, unload boats and gear, drive their vehicles to Robinson State Park and return by shuttle to the launch area.  Staggered Cruise departures will begin around 10 AM.
