Come out and Kayak with us for FREE at Drost Park in Maryville IL.
Boats, gear, safety personnel is all provided. You will be assigned an hour during the day to kayak.
There will be a short Safety Orientation, then you will pick a life jacket, a paddle, a boat, and launch onto the lake. Safety boaters will be on the lake to assist you. We have a variety of kayaks for you to chose from and a limited number of paddle boards also. Boaters less than 10 years of age are not allowed to kayak solo. We do have a minimum number of tandems that an adult and child can share. Registration is on a first come first serve basis.
Drost Park is located off Vadalabene Drive, then south on Schiber Court past Alfonzo’s Pizzeria to Myron Provence Parkway which is the park entrance. Visit the website: www.vil.maryville.il.us for a map to Drost Park.
