The City of Gainesville is surrounded on 3 sides by the beautiful Lake Lanier. Our lake offers incredible leisure opportunities - from fishing guided tours with local experts to a leisurely day water skiing with friends. The lake is popular with boaters, houseboats, jet skiers and others, particularly around the summer holidays. Over 7.5 million people per year visit the lake, including its marinas and the Lake Lanier Islands water park. The rowing and sprint canoeing events during the 1996 Summer Olympics were held at the lake. It also hosted the canoe sprint World Championships in 2003 at the Lanier Canoe and Kayak Club.
