Summer fun on the water doesn't have to stop due to the lack of equipment, kayak rentals are now available at Riverside Park Lagoon in Grand Rapids.

On Fridays from 4 to 8 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. anyone can rent a kayak or paddleboard.

Anyone age 10 and up can rent a kayak, but they must be 16 or older to rent a kayak without an adult supervisor.

Rentals cost $8 an hour, and $6 for every additional hour, cash only.

To learn more, visit and search "kayak."
