Kayak or Hike Canandaigua Lake Sunday June 26 from 4-6PM. ***BOATERS AND WALKERS WILL MEET AT DIFFERENT LOCATIONS***. Boaters will paddle south from Ontario County Beach Park (park and launch are free, no portaging necessary and there are bathrooms) on the east side of the lake passing Deep Run Park, the historic Thendara Restaurant and Boathouse which are now part of a Mcmansion housing development and, if time permits, past Crystal Beach Park where there are still some of the older quaint lakeside cottages.

Walkers will meet at the City Pier for a self-guided hike, by the boathouses, explore the marina area then head to Lakeshore Drive and turn right into Kershaw Park, following the trail along the lake. At Twisted Rail walkers will head back to the road, cross it and enter Lagoon Park where there is a figure-8 loop around several ponds; there are several board maps along the trail. Then strollers will retrace their steps back to the Pier for a total of 3 miles.

  1. Our social venue has been changed to Murphy’s Law on Lakeshore Drive across from the Pier. Located on north (right) side of road, there’s ample parking next to the restaurant. Extensive food and drink menus, moderate pricing, kitchen open till 10pm, plenty of outdoor seating and a gorgeous view of the lake 🌞
