Enjoying the Outdoor Adventures Program

Having a well run Parks and Recreation Department is an important part of any community. Not only do they give you access to parks but also provide array of facilities and special programs for visitors to enjoy.

Today, we are featuring the Georgetown Parks and Recreation Department Outdoor Adventure Programs.

ACK has been working with Joe Armstrong, Youth Adventure Coordinator, for several years now. It’s always been obvious to us that he truly cares a great deal about what he is doing. He maintains a nice fleet of canoes and kayaks that he uses for organized trips to some amazing locations such as Colorado Bend State Park, Frio River, upper Guadalupe River and Possum Kingdom Lake. Joe schedules these trips throughout the year, which can be enjoyed by both area residents and visitors.

These adventures only require a nominal fee but you must be at least 12 years old to participate. However, there is a family trip scheduled for the Frio River that accommodates anyone that is 8 and up as long as a parent is present. Joe and the gang work tirelessly to teach people that it’s okay to turn off your TV and put down your iPads for an exciting outdoor adventure.
