Residents enjoying kayaking near Olympus Woodbridge in Sachse, Texas.



Sometimes you just need to get outside and have a little fun on the water. Only fifteen minutes from Olympus Woodbridge Apartments is Paddle Point Park, the start of a 6.4-mile Paddling Trail that hugs the shoreline the whole way. Your outdoor adventure awaits at this waterside park that launches boats into Lake Ray Hubbard.

Canoe or Kayak

What better way to enjoy the water trail than in a canoe or kayak? Rent your boat from Kayak Instruction Inc. and float in the cool shade of the tree-lined banks. They offer one and two person kayaks, fishing kayaks, and canoes. Lessons in basic skills are available from ACA certified instructors and for the more adventurous there are whitewater classes.

You can spend many hours on the trail or just a few by cutting across the lake and shortening the loop. Tie your boat off in the middle of the lake at an old bridge and cool off with a refreshing swim. Enjoy views of Great Blue Herons and other water birds and if you are lucky you will even spot a Bald Eagle.

Stand Up Paddle board

If you have never tried it, now might be the time to try the challenge of a stand-up paddle board or 'SUP'. Kayak Instruction Inc. offers one and two-person boards with paddles and personal floatation devices included. If you are new to paddle boarding start with the one person board which is much easier, two on a board is a tricky balancing act. Paddle boarding along the scenic trail is fun but probably easier in a canoe or kayak. Why not try a SUP yoga class at the park? Kayak Instruction offers daytime and sunset SUP yoga classes so you can get fit and enjoy your time on the water too.
