Kathy Osterman Beach, AKA Hollywood Beach, offers a little something different from our downtown locations. This quieter Uptown spot features a bit slower pace and less hustle and bustle then North Avenue or Ohio Street Beaches, especially on weekends. This locale offers Rentals, Lessons, Storage, and off-peak access with our 10hour and Season Pass options below. This location also has less boat traffic than the other two locations, which can often lead to flatter water. It is a good option during those mid-day weekends if you are looking to escape the downtown crowds.

**Pass purchase does not guarantee you off-peak access privileges**
All pass holders seeking off-peak access privileges need to demonstrate an ability to paddle in a safe manner and a proficiency in the equipment handling process prior to being granted the privilege to access equipment at their discretion.
