Welcome to Argo Cascades!
No longer do you have to interrupt your river run down the Huron River, from Argo Pond (just north of downtown Ann Arbor) to Gallup Park, to portage your canoes, kayaks, and tubes. During the spring of 2012, the city of Ann Arbor completed its construction of a boat bypass channel around Argo Dam in the old Argo millrace.
Did You Know?
- The last time the Huron River flowed freely in this area was in 1830.
- 500 people took an online survey in February 2012 to help name the renovated area 'Argo Cascades'.
- Argo Cascades now has nine drops and pools to enjoy!
Relax Among the Greenery
Take a day to enjoy canoeing, kayaking, or tubing down the Huron River, or (new this year) rent a stand up paddle board to paddle along the still water areas. A trip to Argo Canoe and Livery is definitely one of the many ways to see Ann Arbor's beautiful greenery.
For more information on instruction, rentals, and hours of operation go to Argo Canoe Livery.
