Ann Arbor’s Argo Park, Gallup Park canoe liveries to reopen Monday

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – The Argo Park and Gallup Park canoe liveries will reopen for boat rentals on Monday, according to the City of Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation.

The liveries will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day. Reservations are required for all rentals.

The liveries closed on July 7 after the city was notified that an employee had tested positive for COVID-19. On July 9, the city notified the public of a second employee who tested positive. The employees were acquaintances outside of their work at the liveries.

The instance was deemed a “low-risk event” by the Washtenaw County Health Department and possible exposure dates were narrowed to July 3-5.
