Canoe/Kayak Rentals Available at Three More County Parks

Shallow water enthusiasts, nature lovers and bird watchers will be able to rent canoes and kayaks from three additional Hillsborough County Parks in the coming weeks. The expansion of the canoe and kayak rental program is due in part to public request and the success of the initial rental program that began at Lettuce Lake Park last month. Rentals will be starting at the following Parks and dates:

  • E.G. Simmons Park, 2401 19th Avenue NW on Nov. 20
  • Lake Park, 17302 N. Dale Mabry on Nov. 27
  • Upper Tampa Park, 8001 Double Branch Road on Nov. 13

Canoe rentals and paddles are available for $25 for up to four hours. Required safety equipment such as a personal flotation device and whistle are included. Cost for more than a four-hour rental is $10 per hour (cash only, please).
