Family Tubing

2023 Season

Family Tubing will open the 2023 on June 10 and close August 6, 2023.

The peaceful waters flowing through Waid Park is the perfect escape for anyone looking for affordable outings this summer. The S-turning river is well suited for families or individuals who desire an easy, no shuttle needed float. Float it once or multiple times. Groups of 10 or more, please call one week in advance. Weekday group rentals are available upon request and staff availability. Lifejackets are provided free of charge. Ages 17 and under must have a supervising adult present. 


3 put in options are available allowing tubers the flexibility to customize the distance and duration of their time on the water. Remember to keep your bottom-up and feet first throughout the float.

The Upper

The upper put-in allows for up to 1 mile of floating. It will take approximately 10 minutes to walk to the access point with a 55-minute float to the lower bridge. (Float times are contingent upon water level) 

The Middle

The middle put-in allows for a 1/2 mile float. It will take approximately 5 minutes to walk to the access point with a 30-minute float to the lower bridge.

The Lower

The lower put-in allows for a 1/4 mile float. The put-in is directly adjacent to the tube rentals shelter. It will take approximately 20 minutes to float this section.
