847 414-5883 (Lagoons)
Opening day - Saturday, May 2nd
Make your own trip for a quick hour's getaway or an afternoon. We'll provide everything you need, including enough paddling instruction to get you going if you're a beginner.
Come out and explore a natural stretch of the Chicago River, a winding stream where herons stalk the shallows for fish and turtles bask on logs, right on the city's north side.
From the Lagoons launch you paddle a lovely set of wooded ponds connected by narrow paddling channels.
To get a workout while making some paddling friends, join our Cardio Kayak groups on weekday evenings in Chicago.
