Canoe Quick Starts are a great opportunity to get out on the water and enjoy the lake at Milton Country Park.

We have a British Canoe qualified coach on hand for these sessions if you’d like to improve your paddle skills.

Suitable for adults and children or families who’d like to paddle together.

Minimum age 5
Children under 12 must be accompanied on the water.
Parents of children 12-16 must remain on the bank.
Buoyancy aids will be provided.
Max two people per boat.
Please bring a change of clothing.

Quick starts are one hour long. Please arrive ten minutes before your session.

August 11th at 10am is an all-ability session.
Canoeing is, by its nature, an accessible activity. Our boats are large and stable and our instructors are experienced with children and adults of all ages and abilities . We welcome everyone to all programmed sessions.
All-ability sessions are simply kept smaller and quieter for those with sensory issues and gives those with additional needs an opportunity to enjoy a session with their peers.
