Kayak Rental Tips

  • Timeliness of accessing your rental locker is extremely important. You have a 10 minute window to access your kayak locker. That window starts 5 minutes prior to your scheduled time.
    • For example, for a noon rental you must open the locker between 11:55 am and 12:05 pm. Once the locker has been opened you can return your equipment anytime up to 5 minutes prior to your rental period.
    • For example, if you're rental period ends at 1 pm, you must have the locker opened by 12:55 pm 12:55 to 1 pm is considered a maintenance period for you to organize and reposition the gear in the locker to prepare for the next rental.
  • Never share your locker access with anyone else. You are responsible for the equipment in your locker during your time period.
  • Be prepared to sanitize as necessary to protect yourself from COVID-19 or any other virus. Parks and Recreation does not provide sanitizing materials or equipment.
