Mississippi River Paddle Share

Mississippi River Paddle Share is a new and exciting recreational and transportation opportunity for people who have some kayaking experience, don’t own a boat, and want a safe and enjoyable river experience. This is a first-of-its-kind program in a national park and in the country. Kayak rental stations and return stations are located in select parks within Three Rivers Park District. Reserve your kayak for a specific date and time, pick it up at the selected rental station and return it to the designated return station when you’re finished. Single-person and tandem kayaks are available. There are five options for Mississippi River Paddle Share and three are located in Minneapolis Northwest:

- North Mississippi Regional Park to Boom Island Park – 3.9 miles
- River Park to North Mississippi Regional Park – 4.5 miles
- Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park to North Mississippi Regional Park – 7.5 miles
- Lowry Avenue Bridge to Boom Island Park – 1.7 miles
- Hidden Falls Regional Park to Harriet Island Regional Park – 6.3 miles
