I am having the most fun learning more and more about all the wonderful opportunities there are for fun and playtime right here in my own small town.
Did you think you would need to drive somewhere to enjoy a peaceful canoe trip or the adventure of kayaking? Well I did, until I read a recent article about the canoe and kayaks available for rent right here in Tecumseh.
Just run over to the Community Center located on Chicago Blvd just as you come into town from the east (you can't miss it, the big building with the waterwheel) pull into the west side drive and go on back to park by Globe Mill Pond. There you will find a dock (perhaps with a couple of gentleman fishing as I came across when I stopped by) and several canoes and kayaks ready to take you on your next Summer adventure.
Called the Globe Mill Pond Kayak and Canoe Livery, they are now open for business.
Don't let the Geese be the only ones out enjoying the beautiful scenery and the fun of gliding across the water. Take some time to fish, float or just daydream, leave the cell phone behind and relax. It can also be a great way to exercise, just pump those paddles fast and you'll be burning calories and firming those arms.
When the Community Center is open go inside and fill out a rental form at the parks and recreation office, if you stop by on the weekend when they are closed, call the number they have posted and someone will come right out to assist you.
Rentals are $5.00 for a half day (up to 4 hours) or $10.00 for a full day, so bring a picnic hamper, the geese will be happy to share!
