The City of Lake Wales Commission approved a pilot program to start offering rentable self-service kayaks and paddleboards at Lake Wailes Park. Residents and visitors access the floating devices, accessories and lifejackets from automated lockers. 

“People are going to love these self-service options,” Recreation Manager Stephanie Edwards said. “As the city grows in population, we want to provide fun solutions to keep people active and outdoors,” she added.

Pay-per-use or monthly and yearly subscriptions are available. Users are required to register for an account on the mobile app Rent.Fun, sign a waiver and submit payment. Minors must be registered by an adult.

“The locker system is convenient and easy to use,” Edwards said. “As we see an increase in demand, we plan to add more rentable solutions,” she added.

 Six kayaks and two paddle boards will be available for rent in the initial pilot.
