Experience free canoeing at Harlem Meer

By HarlemGal for HarlemCondoLife

Walking along Central Park North on Sunday, I discovered several red canoes in the pond at Harlem Meer. I wonder what was up…so I headed on over to Lasker Rink where there was a sign-in desk. There I saw New York City Urban Park Rangers helping people put on life jackets, placing them in a canoe and pushing them off into the pond at Harlem Meer. Urban Park Rangers were offering free canoeing all day on June 27 from noon until 3 PM. New York City Department of Parks and Recreation offer it every summer on select Sundays. One of the Park Rangers on site said to check the schedule online regularly to see when they’re offering free canoeing again. The Park Ranger said it will happen again soon! There is free canoeing offered about three or four times throughout the summer. How fun! I am going to try it!

So if your interested in canoeing at Harlem Meer one Sunday this summer, check the online schedule and then head on up to Harlem Meer, which is located in Central Park near 110th Street and Adam Clayton Powell Blvd!
