Canoe, kayak or pedal boat on Lake Ellyn this summer!

Posted on: March 26, 2019

One of Glen Ellyn’s finest gems becomes your space for exploration once again this summer. Row or peddle alongside the Boathouse, shores, fishing pier, and out onto the middle of Lake Ellyn during the Boating in the Park series, presented by the Glen Ellyn Park District.



Anyone can visit Lake Ellyn during Boating in the Park days to rent kayaks, canoes, or a pedal boat at $5 per boat for 20 minutes. Boating in the Park is open to all ages; however, each participant must be able to safely fit into a Glen Ellyn Park District life jacket.

Boating is a fun way to get exercise outside, working both your upper and lower body. Instruction is also provided by staff for visitors that are unfamiliar with different rowing techniques.

Rentals are available from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on the following Sundays at Lake Ellyn Park:

  • June 9
  • June 23
  • July 7
  • July 21
  • August 4
  • August 18

Please note, this activity may be cancelled due to inclement weather. Updates will be posted on the Glen Ellyn Park District’s Rainout Line.
