Fall River Day

Sunday, September 24, 2023

Come to Fall River Day's annual event on September 24th from noon to 3 PM on the Huron River at Frog Island Park.

Enjoy fall on the Huron River at Ypsi Fall River Day at Frog Island Park on Sunday, September 24th, from Noon to 3 PM. There will be kayak trips for a nominal fee and family-friendly activities, including an educational program on river wildlife. Ypsi Fall River Day is hosted by the City of Ypsilanti Parks and Recreation Commission.
Paddle the river as it winds through Ypsilanti into Ford Lake—perfect for beginner and experienced kayakers alike—single and two-person kayaks and transportation provided for a nominal fee (rental rate of $15 per kayak). Launch from Frog Island Park anytime between 12-3 PM. Catch the shuttle back to the park from a designated downstream takeout on the hour until 4 PM. Walk up registration only. A limited number of kayaks are available on a first come, first served basis.
There will be an educational program on river wildlife by the Huron-Clinton Metroparks Mobile Learning Center. Other exhibitors include the Huron River Watershed Council, Huron Waterloo Pathways Initiative/Border to Border Trail, Washtenaw County Parks & Recreation Commission, the Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner's Office, the Ypsilanti District Library and more!
