Wheel Fun Rentals enables adventurers and families to get an eye-full of wildlife without having to leave the city! Wheel Fun Rentals places water-bound explorers at the helm of a variety of boats including kayaks and pedal boats. For kayaking, come prepared to get a little wet from the drip of your paddle and splash of the water. Dress for the weather; lightweight, synthetic clothing is best. Prepare to be out in the sun; sunglasses, sun block and a hat that won’t blow off.  A water bottle is also recommended for longer excursions. During aquatic adventures, wandering boaters may cruise past a summer concert, explore the shoreline, or enjoy fishing.

Those looking for more of a core workout can hop atop stand up paddleboards and glide across the mirror-like water. Safety instructions and life jackets are provided with every rental, so it's safe and fun for buccaneers of any age. Whether you are a local or visiting the park for the first time, don't miss this unique way to explore Veterans Park!

The park is easily accessible by car or public transit, and is right next to the Lake Michigan WaterfrontThe showstopper of this park is the 14 acre sparkling lagoon, teaming with wildlife. Water enthusiasts can enjoy fishing for Largemouth Bass or feeding the ducks and geese. This park is also the nesting ground of the Blue Heron.

Come rent a pedal boat or kayak and drink in the sights! The park is also perfect for picnicking and is even walking distance from the famous Milwaukee Art Museum.

What's the Difference Between Bike-Share and Bike Rentals?

Bicycle stations are becoming more popular for commuters. Bublr Bikes Share Kiosks offer cycles intended for adult riders looking for a quick one way bike rental over flat terrain. Wheel Fun Rentals caters to all ages looking for fun and affordable bicycle rentals to enjoy with friends, family or loved ones. Better than a bike drop, we’re Milwaukee's best stocked bike station - full of a variety of bikes to choose from. A step beyond the Bublr Bike Share kiosks, we provide safety equipment, a well maintained fleet, bike tours, and excellent customer service! Visit Wheel Fun Rentals, where riders are encouraged to leisurely explore and discover the city at their own pace! Learn more about why we’re different…

-Always Less Expensive     - Accommodates Kids & Families    - Greater Safety    
- Size and Fit Options     - Easier to Pedal     - Maps, Locks, Helmets and More!


Wheel Fun Rentals has straightforward low pricing with no hidden fees - standard bikes start at $10 an hour, $25 for a half day, and $35 for a full day. It's important to read the fine print: Bike-Share pricing is typically low for the first hour or less, but then increase significantly after that. They are designed for short trips so they penalize you for taking the bike for longer periods of time. Take Bublr Bike Share for example, a Single Ride Pass with Bublr Bike Share is $3 for a 30-minute ride, but go over the time by one minute and they start charging you for the next 30 minutes; there is no grace period! Your ride may start out cheaply; but their prices gain speed quickly! If you rent a bike for the day to get around, go shopping, have lunch, sight see, etc., it's upwards of $50! 

Families, Age Requirements, & Helmets
As these systems are geared toward commuters, Bublr Bike Share restricts use to those 14 years of age or older, and limit the number of bikes you can unlock at once. Therefore families or large groups cannot ride together. And helmets are not available with a bike share system. Wheel Fun Rentals caters to children of all ages (with guardian supervision) and provides a variety of helmet sizes with a professional helmet fitting to keep kids and adults both legal and safe

Equipment and Variet
Bike share stations only provide one size bike; they are twice as heavy as a typical bike, plus they only have limited gears. Wheel Fun Rentals has a plethora of bikes that fit all different shapes, sizes, abilities, and age groups. Choose from a full selection of cruiser bikes, hybrid bikes, and family bikes like our Surrey at our Veterans Park South Location.  We have what you are looking for! And we’ll assure you get the right size; adjusted to you for greater comfort, optimal pedaling efficiency, and maximum safety.

Customer Service & Maintenance
Bike share docking stations, although open 24 hours, are all unmanned. Bikes in these systems do not get looked at between every customer and at times are not well maintained. Plus, docking stations have a tendency to fill up or be completely empty during peak commuting hours.  Wheel Fun Rentals' kiosks are always staffed and our friendly and knowledgeable employees can assist you in picking out the right bike and becoming familiar with it, adjusting items like seat height, check tire pressure, fit you for a helmet, give you verbal directions, and so much more. Our fleet is well maintained as it's looked over by a certified mechanic regularly, and inspected for safety before every customer goes out.  Wheel Fun Rentals has a large fleet size to avoid any equipment shortages - there is always something to pedal at our locations.  

Wheel Fun Rentals provides rugged bike locks, helmets, bike bags & baskets (a place for you to put your stuff), self guided tours, and other items to make your journey safe and enjoyable. Try exploring the city with a bike-share bike: you'll receive no helmet, no map to show you where to go, and many bike share systems have no way to lock the bike up if you want to shop, walk around, or stop for lunch.
