Rutabaga Rentals at Olbrich Park - Summer 2017!

 We're excited to announce we will be expanding our rental operation to the east-side of Madison this  summer at Olbrich Park!   Beginning in mid-May running through Labor Day (weather permitting) we will  be offering kayak and stand-up paddleboard rentals, as well as concessions of snacks and non-alcoholic  beverages.  We'll be offering Rec Kayak and SUP classes there too!

 Rutabaga is all about creating communities where people can gather and learn to love the outdoors, particularly on the water. We are happy to help create such a community, and look forward to getting more people enjoying the lakes we all love and cherish.

 Stay tuned for details later this Spring!
