People on a stand up paddle board on the Mandalay Canal

Lake Carolyn and the Mandalay Canals offer several water sport options as well. Imagine gliding across the water at sunset on a Stand Up Paddleboard. Paddleboarding is just what it sounds like. It’s a water sport where a paddle is used while standing up on a surfboard.   It differs from surfing mainly because waves aren’t needed to navigate the water, simply a paddle. Lessons are included.



Kids gliding across the water in a kayak


Glide across the water in your one- or two-man kayak. This is a great upper body workout, or you can just leisurely sight-see at your own pace. It's fun for kids and relaxing for adults. Stand Up Paddle North Texas rents kayaks for one or two hours.





Kids riding on a water water trike



You can also sit high above the water on your own easy to ride water trike, no lessons required. It's fun for the young and the young at heart.
