The Lake Merritt Boating Center invites you to National Recreation & Parks Month with free boat rentals and an open house from 1-3 pm on Saturday, July 20, 2019.

If past years are any indication, you can get ½ hour of free time floating around picturesque Lake Merritt. You can find free parking on Grand Ave., otherwise there is a $5 Lakeside Park parking charge. We expect it will be the same this year.
