Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe is closing the Boathouse Location at 1515 SE Water Ave, Portland Oregon

Portland, March 1, 2016 – After a 12 year run Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe will close the Portland Boathouse location permanently as of March 31, 2016. All other locations to continue unaffected by this closure.

The Alder Creek flagship store at 200 NE Tomahawk Island Dr Portland, OR 97217 and our 4 Rental/Lesson/Tour locations in Ridgefield, WA; Tryon Cove and George Rogers Park in Lake Oswego and Browns Ferry Park in Tualatin continue to operate normally.

“There are two in-water projects that make operating in 2016 a challenge. The dock is being repaired in March and an in-water cleanup project in July & August will keep us off the water and unable to do rentals or tours at this location”  Dave Slover – Owner Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe

“While it’s a bummer to lose such a great spot so close to downtown it’s never been exactly what we needed down there. Inadequate parking, an increase in homeless camps and a long carry to the water are all issues at this location. “  Paul Kuthe – Programs Manager at Alder Creek.

Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe has been in business 30 years in the Portland area.  They continue to be an industry leader and the premiere kayak, canoe & stand up paddle store and paddling school in Oregon.

“Purely Paddlesports since 1986”
