Snowshoe rentals now available at Guindon ParkFebruary 11, 2022
An outdoor adventure company is making it easier for residents and visitors to explore the many winter wonders of Guindon Park with the launch of snowshoe and fat bike rentals.
Boatingery Adventure Trends is launching the new rental service at the massive winter playground on the west edge of the city along Vincent Massey Drive.
“Guindon Park is an ideal location to enjoy nature and physical activity during the winter. Our rental service will allow even more people to access the trails and try a new activity,” said Shazad Ahmad, who operates Boatingery along with business partner Imran Haider.
The rental service is located in a pop-up container at the eastern parking lot entrance to Guindon Park (the most easterly of the three park entrances) close to the trail head. Rentals will be offered Fridays to Sundays from 9 am to 5 pm, weather permitting. Customers are encouraged to reserve in advance by calling 514-817-6494 and rental requests can also be arranged on other days in advance. Rentals can also be arranged on the spot subject to availability.
Snowshoe rental fees
$10 per pair for first hour and $5 for each hour after
Special family deal: $30 for a family of 4 for an hour
Fat bike rental fees
$15 for first hour and $10 for each hour after
Call or text 514-817-6494 to reserve
The winter equipment rentals are an expansion for Boatingery from their summer rentals of transparent kayaks at Guindon Park.
“Cornwall is a great place to enjoy the outdoors in all four seasons,” Ahmad added. “The kayak rentals were quite popular and we hope to build on that with winter equipment rentals and other possibilities in the future.”
