Millennium Park - Boating Center

Now, visitors to Millennium Park can enjoy a variety of boating opportunities on the main lakes of the park. At the DeVos Family Boathouse, we offer kayaks, paddle boats, canoe, stand up paddle boards and row boats for rent. Boaters can explore the south section of Lake Leota near the beach as well as the north section of the lake, by paddling under a trail bridge. A paved pathway connects the new boating center to the beach area, near the Splashpad.
