Here's a great idea - for exercise and relaxation at the same time! It can be romantic or a great way to wear out the kids who have been sitting for way too long. How can one activity be both, you ask? The answer is Pedal Boats.They seat four, comfortably, and come with life jackets (though the water isn't very deep). all the boats they rent are just about four years old, at this point, so no shabbiness here. there are two pedals, so two people can power the boat, which is important, I think. You can rent one at The Boat House. That sounds logical, doesn't it? They rent beautiful row boats, imported from somewhere in Europe, too! The other evening, I walked by the boat dock and noticed a few kayaks, too. I guess you can rent those now, too.

Where can you pedal? Almost, all over Forest Park, from morning through the evening! Different water bodies are nicely connected together. You pass under pedestrian bridges. You can get off on a small island, if you wish, or along the Grand Basin. Nice scenery. Once, I saw a boy swimming behind his family (in the pedal boat) on a hot day!

The Boat House is also a Great Place to Eat lunch or dinner, year round!!!
