  • We've enjoyed doing paddle boating over the past few years, however they've decided to remove the ability to reserve a boat in advance, meaning we had a two hour wait in line before we could ride. When asked why, they simply said they didn't want to do it this year. Severely disappointed, and I would suggest skipping this attraction and take a stroll instead.
  • Very nice today, a couple of days before the peak of the Cherry Blossoms. Paddle boaters are beginning to take to the waters. Not too crowded yet, you can get close to the trees and get that selfie. The weekend will be crowded and parking will be a premium, good luck, if driving. Shuttle buses will provide transportation options.
