Kinder Lake

Kinder Lake
Spreading serenely over more than an acre of the park, Kinder Lake is one of the signature features of Discovery Green. Situated on the north side of the park near the Anheuser-Busch stage, the area also features:

  • The Cooper Industries Water Garden
  • The Merrill Lynch Co. Pier
  • Carruth Lake Lights
  • Kayak rides, classes and camps, as well as Stand Up Paddleboarding, are offered during the Spring and Fall seasons.
  • The Model Boat Basin, a shallow pool for remote-controlled battery-operated watercraft. Remote-controlled sailboats are available for rental on weekends from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the Spring, Summer & Fall seasons. Visitors are welcome to bring their own battery-operated remote-controlled boats during park hours. 
  • The ICE at Discovery Green. Every Winter Season from mid-November through mid-January, the Model Boat Basin of Kinder Lake is turned into an outdoor ice skating rink!  The ICE is open daily during the holiday season and has become a favorite downtown holiday destination for the entire family.
