Hi, I've been looking at the $499 paddle boats that Academy always has in ads, but I can't think of a small pond or lake to take it to. Any help? I think Medina is too big. Is there a nice "park like" pond or lake similar to the river in Brackenridge? Didn't the riverwalk have paddle boats back in the day? I saw them on "Cloak and Dagger" (1984 movie shot in SA). Thanks for any help.

Interesting question. I had no idea there was a market for paddle boats. You might want to call one of the marinas and ask them this question. Colburn Marine and Supplies on Hildebrand is a great company..wonderful owner. Ask for Mr Colburn....super nice man. Born and raised in San Antonio and should know every lake and river in South Texas.

I remember going to Landa Park in New Braunfels, but we rented paddle boats there. Same at some of the other smaller marina areas at Canyon and Lake McQueeny.

We do know some people that have lake front property at Lake McQueeny. They keep a paddle boat at the dock.

I have a question....we LOVE to go out boating, but we are not boat owners. I'm wondering how easy it is to transport and launch a paddle boat, or were you looking to dock one?

Woodlawn Lake has a boat ramp. I've seen small sailboats on it. It is probably a good bet for a paddle boat. Medina is definitly too big. I would think any lake or pond that has rental boats would not allow owned boats to be used. But ask and see, the worst thing they can say is no.
