Chicago Botanic Gardens Paddle

Tags: Attend, Urban Canoe Adventures, Ticketed events, and Canoe Program

In partnership with the Chicago Botanic Gardens, Friends invites you to participate in a rare opportunity to canoe the lakes of the Chicago Botanic Garden. Herons, ducks, small fish, and maybe even a few turtles and frogs will greet you as we explore their watery habitat. No experience with canoeing is necessary; instruction, canoes, life jackets, and paddles are all provided. Please choose one of the scheduled start times. You’ll enjoy a full hour canoeing the lakes of the Garden. 

Registration required. Children must be at least 5 years old to participate. Maximum three participants per boat.

Visit the Chicago Botanic Garden to register.
