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.

Please take note of these Park Rules when visiting the lake:

  • Do not enter lake
  • Do not throw objects in water
