Pedalmotion for Locomotion

“Pedalmotion for Locomotion” is back again! Join us on September 23rd from 12-4pm, for a fun-filled day of pedal boat racing, at our very own Willow Lake in Look Park. Come by and help us raise funds to help support the Park’s 1853 replica Huntington Train as well as the 1/2 scale Parsons House which we use as our Train Station!

Since 1948, the Look Park train has been a well received addition for Park guests of all ages. Annually over 50,000 children and their families enjoy the on mile loop around the Park to the delight of all who join us for this special experience. While the curved track was replaced a few  years back, much of the straight track is still the original track laid down almost 70 years ago. Much of the track has worn down and will need to be replaced soon to insure the continued safety of all our guests.

How does this fun event work, you may ask! Teams of two (2) will depart from the dock at Willow Lake with the hopes of setting the best time of the day in a variety of categories. Teams may choose to take a more leisurely trip, if so desired. Some other perks of taking part in this fun event include free vehicle entry into the Park on event day, a cookout hosted by Local Burger, and a commemorative water bottle. To stay up-to-date on Pedalmotion for Locomotion follow Look Memorial Park  on Facebook!

To participate, sign up at must be 18 years of age to be a pedaler, but participants of all ages are welcome.
