Paddleboard & Kayaking

For Ages 6 and Up

Part of the Y mission is developing the spirit, mind and body of all. Being outside in nature, and being well equipped mentally and physically to enjoy the experience, is one of the greatest gifts this area of Texas has to offer.

Situated just meters from the beautiful shores of Ladybird Lake, TownLake YMCA is poised to bring outdoor paddleboarding and kayaking to Y members. Experience new views of Austin and explore perspectives you’ve never seen before from your perch on the water.

Y On The Water

The Y has partnered with the Texas Rowing Center to offer a free Paddle Board and Kayaking program on Lady Bird Lake. This class does not provide an instructor, however, the Y will facilitate and assist those registered. (Offered in the Spring.)

Meet other outdoor enthusiasts and see how many flora and fauna you can identify when you embark on a water adventure. The city is your springboard when you enroll in paddleboarding and kayaking through the YMCA.

“The unique combination of peace and exhilaration that comes from being out on the water is hard to describe. You just have to experience it for yourself.”
