Cook Park Boat Rentals are open Memorial Day through Labor Day

Tualatin Riverkeepers (TRK) rent canoes and kayaks from the boat ramp at Cook Park, 17005 SW 92nd Avenue in Tigardfamily-croppedRadford-Bean-Credit-2.

Rentals begin at 9:00 am each day and all boats must be returned to the dock before 6:00pm.

Canoes and double kayaks cost $35 per boat for up to 4 hours and $10 per additional hour.  Solo kayaks and SUPs rent for $25.  Life jackets and paddles are included.

“The Tualatin River is the family-friendly river in Portland’s backyard,” said Mike Skuja, Tualatin Riverkeepers Executive Director.  “In the summer there is very little current, so it is the perfect place for someone who has never paddled a canoe or kayak before.  Renting our fleet at Cook Park makes it easy to get started, but the scenic beauty and abundant wildlife are what bring folks back time and time again.”


To make it more affordable for repeat customers, the Riverkeepers have offered a membership deal.  TRK members receive one free rental and $10 off each additional rental.  Memberships start at $35.  Memberships are available online at or at Cook Park during boat rentals.

TRK’s Cook Park Boat Rentals will be open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from May 27, 2016. Our last weekend we are open only Sat/Sunday September 17th and 18th from 9:00 am. Last launch at 4:00pm. All boats must be returned by 6:00 pm.
