Rent a community garden, canoe rack or bike locker this summer

In 2017, the City expanded its community gardens with a third site and increased the number of plots available to rent from 98 to 178. The community gardens are located at Smith Park, Harrison Park and Brookside Park. Renting a plot that measures 10 by 15 feet costs $39.05 for the season (May – October). 

This year the City is also expanding the number of canoe racks for rent at West Bush Lake Park from 50 to 92. Racks may be used for canoes, kayaks, paddleboards and sailboards. The rental fee is $80.64 per season.

Additionally, the City offers bike lockers for rent at Dred Scott, and at the southwest corner of Old Shakopee Road and Bloomington Ferry Road. Bike Lockers cost $10.75 per month with a three-month minimum or $64.52 per year. These lockers are convenient to MTC bus lines and ideal for commuter use.
