Wheel Fun Rentals in New Orleans City Park Sponsors Big Lake Cleanup with Free Canoes

New Orleans, LA, April 25, 2021 - (PR.com) - Wheel Fun Rentals in New Orleans City Park is proud to sponsor the Big Lake Cleanup organized by the Friends of City Park. The Big Lake Cleanup provides an opportunity for residents to give back to the community while enjoying a day out on the water. Wheel Fun Rentals will provide canoes free of charge to volunteers during the event.

Volunteers that opt to go out on the water to help cleanup shore debris will enjoy the sights of the incredible assortment of feathered, furry and finned animals that call City Park’s 1,300 acres and 11 miles of lagoons home. The event will be offered monthly with the first event being held on Wednesday, May 5, 2021 starting at 8:45am (weather permitting).

Volunteers should meet at the parking lot across from the Reunion Shelter in City Park (4 Friedrich's Avenue) to participate in a shoreline cleanup. There is a maximum of 3 volunteers per canoe and all participants will be provided with, and must wear, lifejackets while on the water. At least one person in each canoe must be over the age of 18, and at least one person per canoe should be experienced in canoeing, especially if it is a windy day. Wheel Fun Rentals staff will also be available to train volunteers on safe canoeing.

“Having been part of the City Park New Orleans community for nearly a decade, we are happy to be able to provide a resource needed to maintain the natural beauty of our park,” said John Fryhling, owner and operator of Wheel Fun Rentals in City Park. “We are proud to help keep the environment clean for all of the wildlife that make Big Lake their home.”

Friends of City Park will provide water, limited bug spray/sunscreen, and first aid items. Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own water bottles to cut down on plastic cup waste. Masks and social distancing must be observed by participants and all volunteers will be required to have a temperature check prior to starting on the project.

Having operated in New Orleans City Park since 2013, Wheel Fun Rentals provides safe, outdoor recreation for visitors and locals alike. Their iconic swan boats and four-wheel Surrey cycles have become a must-do activity for families, date nights, parties and more.
