Along the edge of downtown Oklahoma City runs the Oklahoma River, a 7-mile-long waterway that has reinvented outdoor recreation in the capital city.  Three dams raise the level of the water, while two locks allow boats to travel down the river.  The Oklahoma River is a wide body of water that accommodates activities like kayaking, canoeing, dragon boating and more.  OKC Riversport offers rental equipment for those sports, as well as pedal boat rentals.  World-class facilities on the banks of the Oklahoma River are headquarters for these watersports and also house impressive fitness and training areas.  Recognized as a U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Site, the river attracts athletes from all over the world. 

The Oklahoma River is the site of many events and festivals throughout the year, including the Oklahoma Regatta Festival, a three-day event celebrating watersports on the river.  Oklahoma River Cruises offer rides down the river, from holiday-themed cruises to party cruises.  Multiple 12-foot-wide, multi-use trails line the banks of both sides of the Oklahoma River for a total of 13 miles, providing a smooth, paved surface for runners or cyclists.  Rod and reel fishing is allowed in the Oklahoma River with a state fishing license and a city fishing permit.
