Since 1910 we have enabled serious paddlers to participate in races, cruises, fellowship and fitness.
OUR LOCATION Wanda Canoe Club has been headquartered in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey on the Hackensack River estuary. From Rt. 46 take the Main St. Ridgefield Park exit and head North. At the second light, (Mount Vernon Street), turn left and go down the hill toward the river. After crossing the tracks, take an immediate right onto Industrial Avenue and look for the DPW property on the left, the equivalent of about three blocks ahead. The Wanda facilities is to the left of the gravel parking lot between the DPW buildings. Click HERE for an overhead view.
WHAT WE HAVE ACHIEVED The Wanda Canoe club was established around 1900 and now numbers about 30 members. Wanda members have played active leadership and athletic roles in the ACA, national, international and Olympic programs. Today, much of our effort is in the Marathon program. We also enjoy paddling for fun and fitness, river running, and canoe camping. To facilitate such a varied program the club maintains a small fleet of recreational canoes and a few racing canoes and kayaks, at our facilities in Ridgefield Park. These are available for use by members and their guests.
