Minot Parks received a generous donation from Minot Noon Rotary of 6 kayaks, lifejackets, and paddles. With this donation, we are now able to offer kayak rentals to the Minot Community.
Kayaks are available to rent through the Minot Parks recreation office located at 420 3rd Ave SW. The cost is $10 per day per kayak. It includes paddle and life jacket. It is a first come first serve basis. You must have your own means of transportation as well as proper equipment to secure the kayaks while transporting, the Minot Park District does not supply this. Payment is due at the time of rental. Kayaks are available for pickup Monday – Friday 12:00 pm – 4:30 pm. Rentals are 24 hours, pick up is anytime after 12:00 pm and drop off is anytime between 8:00 am – 12:00 pm the following day. If past 12:00 pm the following day you will be charged for a second day at drop-off. There is no pick-up/drop-off on Saturday or Sunday. Friday rentals are 3-day rentals only ($30).
You must be 16 years or older to rent the kayaks and if you are under 18 a parent will need to be present to sign the waiver.
