Paddle the Rouge is a Wildlands League annual charity event connecting youth and families to nature and the Rouge River in the city.  Held at Rouge Beach Park in Toronto, Ontario, it helps raise awareness of the importance of the proposed Rouge National Urban Park.

On Sunday, June, 18th, 2017 come celebrate Father’s Day with us on the river and on the beach.

We offer a free Learn-to-Paddle for youth, ages 5-18. And welcome the whole family for a day of paddling and family fun at the beach. We've grown the event to include lots of activities that help families learn how to connect with nature in their city and beyond!
