Mississippi River Paddle Share Season Opens May 26

Mississippi River Paddle Share is a recreational and transportation opportunity for people who don’t own a boat and want a safe and enjoyable river experience. This is a first of its kind in a national park and in the country. 


Be sure to stop by The Sample Room in Minneapolis if you're paddling between Boom Island and North Mississippi Regional Park. The dock behind The Sample Room has kayak parking designated for Paddle Share. Bring your Paddle Share PFD (life jacket) and receive 20% off your total tab.

All the Minneapolis and St. Paul stations are aligned with Nice Ride bike share stations. For a separate fee, you can paddle one way and bike back along this great river. Transit service and ride share is available from the other locations.

See for transit and bike share options, including schedules and locations.
