Make a big splash at the coolest event this summer, the Fourth Annual Summer Splash on July 30, 2011! Beginning at the Morgan Falls Dam Park in Sandy Springs, you can spend a day floating in a kayak, canoe or raft on a six mile journey down the Chattahoochee River to Cochran Shoals. Without a doubt this is one of the best ways to beat the heat this summer.
With daytime temperatures heating up, Summer Splash offers a day of cool relief. Paddle and drift past the river’s natural grandeur; witness a great blue heron in flight or the riffles of a river otter swimming. After completing the float enjoy an afternoon of music, food and fun for the entire family at the Powers Island festivities.
Park your vehicle and catch the free shuttle to Morgan Falls Dam to begin your river journey. The first shuttle will leave at 9:00 a.m. Plan on your river journey taking approximately 3 hours, depending on the rivers current and how much time is actually spent paddling! Upon arrival at Powers Island enjoy the festivities and then catch the shuttle to your vehicle. The last shuttle to your vehicle will leave Powers Island at 4 p.m.
Bring your own boat, or rent a kayak, canoe or raft from one of the park’s authorized outfitters. They will provide you with a boat, paddles, and U.S. Coast Guard approved Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs). Make your boat reservations early! NOTE: Boaters with their own boats please drop off your boat, equipment, and passengers at Morgan Falls Dam first, park near Powers Island and catch the shuttle. There is no parking at Morgan Falls Dam! The last shuttle to leave is at noon; after that the only shuttle will be from Powers Island to your vehicle.
Reservations are required; please call 678-538-1200 to make your reservation, space is limited!
