A great way for a firstimer to get their paddle wet or for a one hour vacation to break up a monotonous workday,
Meet us at the Lansing City Market and start your self-guided adventure. River Town staff will help you into the river across from the beautifully restored Ottawa Power Station and from there it’s up to you. Upstream you’ll find Cherry Hill Park under the towering bridges of I496, just past that is the confluence of the Grand and Red Cedar Rivers. If you choose to start by going downstream you’ll float past Adado Riverfront Park, home of Common Ground and numerous other summer festivals. As you move past the park you’ll start to hear the rumble of the Old Town Dam.
When you’re done exploring head back to the City Market landing. Check out pricing for group events at the lake.

A beautiful 17-acre lake straddling the boundary of Lansing and East Lansing. The City of Lansing recently made a number of improvements to the site including an accessible boat launch, a large pier for fishing, paved parking and a paved trail connecting the park to the Lansing Rivertrail system.
The revitalization has made the city’s newest park the perfect place for everything from an afternoon family outing to large group events. Because of the distance from the city market and the boat transport required a minimum 2 hour rental is required. Check out pricing for group events.
