LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Residents got a chance to explore the Ohio River Saturday for the Metro Parks Canoe Mobile Program.

Participants met up a River View Park for one of five trips along the Ohio River. This is the first time this canoe adventure has been offered from Metro Parks.

"When kids and families get outside they're more likely to make good decisions based on the areas around them and it's just good family, good memories and a lot of good times outside," said Matt Douthitt, Metro Park.

Organizers hope to make it an annual event.
