Kayaking in the Humboldt Park Lagoon (Chicago Parks)

Hello! I know this isn’t technically “wilderness tripping.” Still, I’m curious if anyone has a perspective about kayaking in the Chicago Park district parks such as Humboldt Lagoon, Washington Park, Garfield Park, etc.? I live very close to the pond and very severely want to paddle around the town legally. Do any of you do this? I’d love to learn about your experiences and thoughts on this topic. Thank you!

I am not sure. I know that they rent paddle boats during the summer for people to go out on. I have heard people tell me they saw some one in a kayak a couple days ago. I’m think about putting in and seeing if anyone says anything. I’ll let you know what happens.
