New water attraction could be coming to Columbus

A Columbus startup is looking to bring a first-of-its-kind attraction to the community, but needs your help to do so.

Paddle Park is looking to raise money to fund an indoor paddle sport facility to provide a safe and immersive environment for water sport enthusiasts of all ages, skills, and abilities. Guests will be able to experience canoeing, kayaking, rowing or paddleboarding through many locations around the world without every leaving the outerbelt with visual projection technology and recreated water flow.

The recreational space will offer skill certification classes, while also setting aside time to cater to the needs of guests with disabilities who have otherwise never had an opportunity to enjoy paddle sports.

Paddle Park will also have a snack bar and indoor patio.

The Indiegogo campaign aims to raise $100,000 in 40 days for a facility, equipment, and marketing efforts.

“We are placing our trust in the crowd to come through and help us make this dream a reality,” Janosik continues. “It’s not just for those of us who enjoy paddle sports, but for the many that have never had the chance to experience kayaking, canoeing, rowing or standup paddleboarding. Paddle Park will provide that safe and secure learning environment.”

The Indiegogo campaign will officially launch October 1. A variety of perks are available for donators including unlimited use memberships, Paddle Park swag items, Kayak Kids sponsorships, preview night party, and date night events and more.

Endless Summer: Update on Woodlands Backyard volleyball dome

614now Staff

Published

on

About two years ago, year-around sand volleyball at Woodlands Backyard was but a conversation. Today, we're seeing a little less talk and a lot more action.

The rec bar has announced that they are in the midst of construction an all-seasons dome where volleyballers can bump, set, and spike in subzero temperatures. No matter if we're dealt another Polar Vortex this winter, the Woodlands Backyard dome will be kept at a balmy 72 degrees.

The dome will consist of six courts. Play is expected to begin in November, though the grand opening date has yet to be announced. The second session of indoor sand volleyball is scheduled for January 6.

League registration begins Friday, October 18.

We know this development has been a long time coming, so for those skeptics, Woodlands promises that if the dome falls though, "we will refund you and then go go crawl under a rock and never come out."
