New Pontoon Access installed by Cardiff International White Water Centre

Cardiff International White Water Centre was awarded a £10,000 grant back in February 2021 to aid with reaching more ethnically diverse communities and engaging homeless communities too through paddlesport in the area.

The Canoe Foundation agreed to part fund the project with the £10,000 grant. The grant would give the Centre the opportunity to expand their offering into flat water paddling. This leap would help access harder to reach communities through outriggers and SUPs. The new pontoon would prove an excellent opportunity for people to safely access the water in a key location.

The new pontoon, which expands the canoe trail route access to Cardiff Bay and the River Tay and Ely, is already helping to engage diverse communities since its completion earlier this year. The hope is that this key location will encourage others to give paddling a go. Especially when they see others around Cardiff giving it a go!

We rely on donations to improve places to paddle across the UK. Please consider donating a one off or regular amount to our Foundation to help us continue with our work and ensure everyone has sustainable, effective access to our waterways and coastline. Thank you. Donate here >
