Rec Rentals @ the Docks
Canoe, kayak, paddle, pedal or SUP – make a splash at Rec Rentals this summer
Entering its 16th year, the Welland Boat Rental Program is now Rec Rentals @ the Docks. We honour our past by highlighting our former shipping canal while celebrating the future by bringing movement back to the water through recreation. Rec Rentals was relocated last year into the City centre, offering more room for gathering areas, picnics, and extending our inventory so many more can explore the canal. Join us and discover our relaxing waterfront activities.
