The Oklahoma River - Fun for All

OKC's Own - Oklahoma River

A 7-mile stretch of the North Canadian River has been transformed into a series of river lakes bordered by landscaped areas, trails and recreational facilities and known as The Oklahoma River.

The Oklahoma River is ideal for man-powered boats such as rowing sculls, kayaks and canoes. Motorized boats are welcome, but are strictly prohibited from operating at speeds that will create a wake. All boats must have both a City permit and State registration.

The Oklahoma River Trails also contains 13 miles of multiuse, asphalt trails, which are located on the north and south banks of the river. The trails are level with little change in grade. The river's trail system is free of motorized vehicle crossings. Walkers, runners, rollerbladers, skateboarder and cyclists are welcome to use the trails.

On the OKC City government website you can find a summary of rules governing the trails and even download a detailed map of the Oklahoma River Trails (PDF).
