NEW PARK FUN!
Look out! Fun ahead! There are new boats and bikes available for rent at the Park.
Wheel Fun Rentals provides both our boats and bikes for rental from the City Park Boat House on Big Lake. Boats and bikes can be rented 7 days a week and the Summer Hours are April – November 9 am – 8 pm (weather permitting).
A photo ID must be presented for the person renting the bike or boat. You must be 18 years of age to rent items. There is a discounted rate of 20% off for Friends of City Park members. New boats include double pedal boats or single kayaks. Boats are rented hourly. Take your kids out on a boat and turn some exercise into an educational experience seeing fish in the lagoons and birds resting in the trees. Glide past bridges built during the 1930s by the men and women of the WPA.
Or explore City Park on wheels! Bikes and surreys are a huge hit with locals and tourists alike. City Park’s four miles of bike paths take riders from Bayou St. John to Lake Pontchartrain. Plus there are trails around Big Lake (3/4 of a mile) and the Festival Grounds (1 mile). Spend time with a friend on a tandem bike or have fun on a surrey bike with a canopy. City Park’s got you covered!
