Paddle board rentals return to Twin Lakes this year.

The paddle boards are returning to Twin Lakes.

Last year Carmon Frick and Karen Taylor of Paddle 32 gained approval from the County of Wetaskiwin to set up paddle board rentals on Twin Lakes.

County council once again approved the venture during its March 7 meeting.

Paddle 32 will be able to offer paddle board rentals from May 14 to Oct. 31.

Council’s decision is dependent on Paddle 32 providing insurance coverage that meets the requirements of the County of Wetaskiwin insurance provider.

“They didn’t obstruct the park,” said Geoff Lynch, director of leisure and community services, who added the rentals helped provide another family-friendly component to the lake.

“I heard nothing but good things,” said Coun. Larry McKeever. He added in the future he would like council to enter into agreements with Paddle 32 for more than one season at a time, so the matter does not have to come before council annually.
