Boating on the Lake, Central Park's second largest water body, is a great way to spend a lazy summer afternoon in the Park. Row boating on the Lake is available April through October, weather permitting. Row boats can be rented at the Loeb Boathouse daily, 10:00 am to 5:30 pm. The boats must be returned by 6:30 pm. Rentals cost $12 for the first hour and $3 each additional 15 minutes. A $30 cash deposit required. Up to four people permitted per boat. No reservations required.
