Public water access, beaches, and a nearby park make Medicine Lake a destination for outdoor fun.
This lake is located right off the southern part of French Regional Park in Plymouth. There is a public water access point on the northern shore of the lake in the park, making it easy to put your boat in and explore the lake.
Rent a boat for the day at Harty’s Boatworks. They have been renting vessels on Medicine Lake since the 1960s at their two locations, one on the north shore and one on the south.
Visit Lake Harriet in Uptown and try your hand at sailing. Minneapolis Park and Recreation offers sailing lessons that will teach you how to rig, jib, tack and dock on a 14-foot, two-sail Lido.
