The Fargo Park District is now making it easier than ever for residents to connect with the outdoors. Whether you prefer to pedal or paddle, there are recreational activities available at Lindenwood Park. New to the park are kayak rentals! “This is the perfect time of year to try kayaking. The weather is mild, the water is calm and it is a great way to experience Lindenwood Park from a new perspective,” said Sam Larson-Frobig, Fargo Park District Program Manager.
It’s first come, first serve for the 10 foot kayaks, suitable for the average user. Pay just $10 to kayak along the scenic Red River for a full hour. Rental hours are Friday from 3:00-8:00pm and Saturday and Sunday from noon until 8:00pm. Renters portage the kayak on the trail from the rental building to the kayak ramp on the Red River. Renters are responsible for returning the kayak to the rental building to complete their rental.
Renters are fitted with a personal flotation device and paddle before take off. Due to weight restrictions on these vessels, no one over 275 pounds are allowed in the kayaks. Also, a person must be over 18 years of age to sign the rental contract. Any person over the age of 12 may be in an individual kayak. No one under the age of 12 is allowed in the kayaks.
