Green Acres Canoe Rental sees steady flow

The Whitewater River is one of the great hidden assets of Harrison, but thanks to the Lutz family and their Green Acres Canoe & Kayak Rental, the river has become a major destination point for thousands of Greater Cincinnatians looking for summer recreation.

Green Acres is in the midst of its 10th season of operation as a canoe and kayak livery and the numbers have grown steadily. When the Lutz family first decided to rent canoes from its property on Suspension Bridge Road, they had 10 canoes to their name. Today the total exceeds 1,000, according to Sharon Lutz, who took over the family operation with her husband, Dave, in 1998 when it offered just miniature golf and a driving range.

Real success
“The sales rep for the company we buy our equipment from says we are the fastest growing canoe rental operation in the country,” she said.

Although the calendar says we are only one month into the summer of 2014, summer break for Harrison High School volleyball players is about to come to an end.

The Ladycats have kept busy with scrimmages and a tournament since school let out in June, but Harrison coach Amy Berwanger has saved most of the 10 coaching days the Ohio High School Athletic Association allows teams in June and July for the days leading up to tryouts, which are just over a week away.
