Experience W: Kayak the Keeper

Wed, Aug 10 · 7:30p 8:30p

W Young Professionals seeks to highlight opportunities that are unique or special to our Wichita Region through Experience W! 

In partnership with Boats and Bikes, W is offering members the opportunity to grab a kayak, paddle board or pedal boat, for a unique view of our city as we experience the downtown riverfront during sunset and the lighting of the keeper of the plains!

The Keeper of the Plains is a44-foot tall steel sculpture standing at the point where the Big and Little Arkansas rivers join together in downtown Wichita. This historic and iconic sculpture is located along the river with a unique ring of fire that is displayed in the evening for visitors. If you’re new to Wichita or a life-long native, this experience is for you!
