TWO ROUTES TO PADDLE SEVEN PERSONS CREEK
Desert Blume (Heron Crt. SE) to Kin Coulee Park — best for beginners. For a wild and adventurous day on the waterway, Seven Persons Creek is the place to be. Throughout an approximate three-hour paddle, you may cross paths with deer, beavers, moose, blue herons, ducklings, and geese, while surrounded by large coulees and refreshing natural sights. Completely immersed in the quiet space, with only the neighbouring sounds of nature, this in-City creek isn’t far to find. Paddle the rapids and go with the flow on the winding streamline.
Desert Blume to South Saskatchewan River — best for experienced paddlers. Paddle among the reeds, rapids, and culverts on the narrow and quick waterway. Ducks and geese may fly as you arrive at their floating spot, and kingfishers might happily hop ahead of you to lead the way. Deer, muskrats, and beavers are other wild creatures that have been seen while paddling this creek. Tall bluffs will tower over you, followed by a canopy of trees. There are many hop-off points once you reach the
South Saskatchewan River, where you can join hundreds of seagulls and a few fishing blue herons living a life we often don’t think about in Police Point Park. If this is the paddle for you, make sure to scout the route beforehand — the water level is always changing, and there is a short portage you need to be ready for. To shorten this route , start at Kin Coulee Park located at 104 South Kin Coulee Rd. SE.
