Riversport OKC: Summer activities underway at Lake Overholser

Each Monday we visit with Mike Knopp, executive director of the Oklahoma City Boathouse Foundation, about various events and activities run by Riversport Adventures. Those locations include the Oklahoma River, Lake Overholser and Lake Hefner.

Riversport Adventures at Lake Overholser is located at 3115 East Overholser Dr. Access includes from the north off of Route 66 or from the south from NW 10th street along the east side of Lake Overholser.

Usually Knopp comes into The Oklahoman's video studio downtown. Today I met Knopp at the Overholser location, where he gave an overview of the efforts, renovations and goals of the Riversport Adventures at Lake Overholser. See the above video for the complete interview, about nine minutes. 

Among the activities available at Riversport Adventures at Lake Overholser: a dual zip line, a climbing wall and the option of jumping off this structure onto a large, inflated landing pad.
