Water's Edge Auditorium Trip to Columbus Zoo Twin Lakes -> Zoo -> Return

Trip Overview

Entertainment trip at night with Charlie Daniels Band starting before dusk and returning after nightfall. Zoo offers many concerts during summertime so it's a combined entertainment/ paddling trip. No access directly at zoo auditorium / shoreline. Be aware that you'll be paddling with kayakers with special needs who may require assistance or be open to helpful advice (taasc - put in near twin lakes). I enjoy being of assistance to adaptive paddlers who've told me one of their bigger dangers is that of lightning or the threat of it.
