    Rowing on Town Lake

    by scott_txguy Written May 7, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rower on town lake

    Rowing, in a Scull. Since it never gets cold enough to freeze the river, you can rent a scull and row on it. There are also canoe and kayak rentals. IT's a nice way to travel up and down the length of the city, and see some terrific views. Don't get too close to the dam though, there is a lot of current next to the power plant. You can row from holly street (the downriver dam) all the way to redbud before you enocounter the upriver (redbud) dam

    Equipment: Austin rowing club, texas rowing, boat rentals in the phone book. There are a few.
