OR simply walk through the garage entrance and go all the way down the ramp and to the right and exit through the glass door. Now you are on the Riverwalk; turn left and you will see our store front with signage in the window and kayaks on the Riverwalk.
Parking at 950 North Kingsbury Street
PARKING GARAGE is located at the intersection of Kingsbury and Oak St. and the cost for all-day parking is $8. You must park on the third floor or higher as the lower levels are for tenants of the building only. Take the elevator down to the Riverwalk G and you’ll see our kayaks and office.
STREET PARKING is available nearby, mostly without payment boxes.
There are three great restaurants to choose from in our building on the south end of the Riverwalk:
For the perfect group day or night (or for a cold one) after a paddle, go upscale with a casual atmosphere and prices at The Motel Bar. Ask for the same day deal. Check out their site at TheMotelBar.com.
Japonais has long been a highly rated, Chicago staple in its contemporary food class. Log onto their site at JaponaisChicago.com.
Snarf’s makes a great sandwich and has plenty of other fare and ice cream, just down the walk. Visit EatSnarfs.com.
