Free Kayaking in Brooklyn Bridge Park

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

There aren’t many appealing activities that revolve around the phrase “It’s fun! But just make sure to keep your mouth shut the whole time” but kayaking is one of them and you can do it for free this weekend and next at the very spiffy Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Just show up in clothes you don’t mind getting wet (or subjecting to Kramer’s famous “East River Smell”) from 11-3 at Pier 1 on Saturday and 10-2 at Main Street on Sunday and aquatic adventure can be yours. The only requirements are that you know how to swim and that anyone under 18 is accompanied by a legal guardian. Best news? You’ll exercise enough to justify trying a macaroni-topped hot dog and other symbols of gluttony at its best at one of the Park’s many vendors afterward… and after all, isn’t that what exercise is really all about?

Jill is an Ohio native and Boston University graduate who refuses to stop saying "pop" and wearing her Red Sox gear despite being heckled for doing so since moving to Brooklyn. She's been honing her thrifty ways since doing that silly thing people talk about when they ignore reason to follow their hearts and chose a career in the fulfilling but faltering music industry. She earns her beer money as a publicist and writer, and spends her spare time cooking, biking, and trying to decide if she's ready to get a cat.
