For Immediate Release:
January 7, 2021

In today’s trying times it’s more important than ever to find activities that are safe, outdoors, and that keep your body moving for mental wellbeing and physical health.  Wheel Fun Rentals has two locations within New Orleans City Park that provide open-air, safe, family fun.

When the COVID 19 pandemic first hit, Wheel Fun Rentals launched a program offering free rentals to first responders through the end of 2020. Recognizing that this year has been like no other Wheel Fun Rentals is proud to announce that they are extending their free rental program for first responders for an additional 3 months.

To show appreciation to those who dedicate themselves to serving the community, Wheel Fun Rentals invites first responders (hospital & urgent care workers, paramedics & EMTs, firefighters, and police officers) to enjoy unlimited FREE 1-Hour rentals through April 1st, 2021. First responders can enjoy some fresh air and exercise and spend some well-deserved time with family. First responders should simply mention this program and show their employment ID or badge at the rental checkout to receive a free rental.

Despite the changes caused by COVID19, there’s still plenty of fun to be had.  Wheel Fun Rentals is the nation’s #1 recreation rental company with two locations within New Orleans City Park offering a wide variety of outdoor fun including specialty cycles, fun bikes, family bikes, low to the ground Chopper and Quad Sport racers, swan pedal boats, kayaks, canoes, and so much more.

The CDC encourages outdoor recreation stating, “Staying physically active is one of the best ways to keep your mind and body healthy. Visiting your local park is a way to relieve stress, get some fresh air, and stay active.  Low-contact outdoor activities like bike riding . . . are great ways for people to get their bodies moving.

Wheel Fun Rentals has been in the recreation business for over 30 years, and customer safety and health are always a top priority. During this period of heightened concern, Wheel Fun Rentals is following all local and CDC guidelines to promote a safe environment for everyone. Safety protocols include social distancing, protective equipment, daily staff temperature checks, sanitizing stations, thorough disinfecting of rental products, touch-less payment, digital receipts, limiting multi-user products to members of the same household, and more.

With bike tours and majestic Disneyesque® swan boats, Wheel Fun’s activities aren’t just for families and kids, they are truly enjoyed by people of all ages and physical abilities.  Wheel Fun Rentals is proud to recognize the community’s first responders for their service and sacrifice during these difficult times.  For more information and terms and conditions, visit

About New Orleans City Park:
In its 170th year, City Park continues to push forward with thoughtful progress as a world-class park. This year a 6-acre expansion of the New Orleans Museum of Art Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden was opened. Café Du Monde opened in City Park in July of 2019. In August, the City Park/Pepsi Tennis Center received the national honor of 2019 USTA Facility Award. In September, the Louisiana Children’s Museum opened its doors to the children of the nation, and Storyland, a true gem of City Park, was revitalized to its full splendor as new generations of New Orleanians play on its fairy-tale sculptures. A large outdoor kitchen in the New Orleans Botanical Garden opened in October. New Orleans City Park is distinguished by its large menu of sports and recreational activities, attractions for children, and its natural beauty. City Park is a 90/10 Park. Self-generated revenue makes up 90% of the $22 million annual operating budget; City Park receives no general fund operating dollars from the city or the state. The Park receives approximately $2 million each year from the state for operations. City Park has a special place in the hearts of generations of New Orleanians and is a must-visit for visitors to the city. The 1,300 acres of parkland provide enjoyment for people no matter their age. City Park is home to the world’s largest collection of mature Live Oak trees. To learn more about the Park, visit
