TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Wabash Valley residents were back on the water Sunday to kickoff summer with the Vigo County Parks’ “Kayaking on the Lake” event at Fowler Park in Terre Haute.
Attendees were able to rent kayaks and take to the water with recreation coordinators. The park department’s goal is to give people the opportunity to learn boat safety and aquatic recreation.
Resource programmer Laura Maloney said she hopes people will enjoy the lake as much as she does.
“I love being outdoors. I think it’s important for overall wellness,” Maloney said. “Just to get outside, sunlight and experience new things. The outdoors is very therapeutic.”
Their next kayaking event will be held on July 24 at Prairie Creek Park from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
