Float To Work Day
The first ever Durango Float To Work Day (inspired by Boulder's "Tube To Work Day") will be held August 25 from 7-9 AM on the Animas River! Grab your kayak, raft, paddle board, or tube and put in at Memorial Park at 29th Street. There will also be free breakfast, coffee and tea set up at the park. The route then snakes down the Animas River until the exit point at 9th street at Schneider Park. Breakfast and coffee will also be provided by the city after the ride.
There will be a free shuttle running from Schneider Park back up to Memorial Park and Durango is offering free ride tokens on local bus routes for participants.
Organizers encourage those who are going to be in the river to wear both life jackets and helmets. They also say they will be monitoring river conditions along the route on the day of the event to be sure ensure it is safe for floaters.
