Share the River Gorge: Ice Cream Social and Canoe

Share the River Gorge is a family event with free ice cream, free canoe rides and rowing experiences, walking tours of the oak savanna restoration area and much more. Canoe rides will be provided by Wilderness Inquiry and the National Park Service, and rowing experiences with the Minneapolis Rowing Club (new this year!) will be staged from the sand flats below the stone steps at 34th & W. River Parkway. The event is sponsored by the Longfellow Community Council (LCC) and its River Gorge Committee. Ice cream is provided by East Lake Dairy Queen. Expect to see lots of friends and neighbors celebrating the river and enjoying the national park in our neighborhood! This event is free and open to the public; donations are accepted to offset costs.
