Ford Field is a large park with a picnic shelter and public restrooms. Paddlers can access the river through the pond and head upstream or downstream. There are currently a few portages around logjams to reach the confluence with the Main Rouge but volunteers are working to open this. Heavner Canoe Rental offers rentals on Saturdays and Sundays.
