Wingra Boats' mission is to connect people to each other, and to nature, through outdoor recreation and education!

 

Wingra Lake is a wake-free lake that is surrounded by the UW Arboretum. We offer public boat rentals which make getting out on the water with friends, family or by yourself easy and fun! Whether you are a first time boater or an avid paddler, Wingra is a perfect place to spend your summer. Check our event calendar to see what is going on this week.
