A paddle board rental company will soon be offering its services to the visitors of Twin Lakes now that Wetaskiwin County council approved an agreement allowing them to run the rental project.

Carmon Frick and Karen Taylor told council they want to use Paddle 32 paddle board rentals as a way to provide healthy, family-friendly activities for those visit the lake and promote Twin Lakes as the attractive, treasured resource they feel it is.

Frick informed council nothing would be permanently built at the lake for the paddle board rentals and all the equipment, when not in use, would be kept with them.

“We wanted to run this past council because Twin Lakes is part of Wetaskiwin County,” said Frick.

Frick says she feels not only will having paddle boards available to rent make the lake an actively sought destination but will also help raise environmental awareness for the health of the lake. “When people are actually able to interact with their environment they respect it and when they respect their environment they want to protect it.”

County administration investigated having the rental business work with the county’s insurance provider Jubilee and requirements would include: a standard contract with the company, a $2 million liability, property insurance, waiver forms, as well as additional insurance and other clauses.

Taylor and Frick already have their waivers and liability in place for the endeavor and the women are just in the process of procuring the necessary equipment.

Paddle 32 is part of a larger healthy lifestyles initiative Frick and Taylor are building on Range Road 32, which is just a few minutes from the lake. Along with Paddle 32 there is Sprout Greenhouse, Sprouts Yoga Loft, Hidden Springs Retreat and Guest House, and The Golf Garage—an up and coming golf simulator business.
