There is a small city park, called Chandler Park, on the south side of the river where Country Club Road crosses the river (on the south side the road's name changes to Spring Valley Road). The park has a small parking lot.

Oct 23, 2006. Looking upstream from near the dam, at the north side of the lake
There is no boat ramp or official launch spot, but there is a place, just upstream from the dam, where a kayak or canoe can be launched. The dam forms a small lake whose slack water extends about a half mile upstream.
On the downstream side of the dam it is an easy wade of about 1.3 miles to the I35 crossing and a further 3/4 mile to the upper end of San Gabriel park.
