Robins' Outdoor Recreation offers more than 200 rentable recreation items for parties, work, and entertainment, and that's just a portion of the potential fun it offers.

Ski, bass and pontoon boats, and campers are just a few of the popular rental items available to help folks finalize their summer plans.

Bill Gurr, Robins Outdoor Recreation director, said his team has worked since the beginning of the year to get all the equipment ready for the season.

"We've purchased several new items, including a new ski boat and new pontoon boat," he said. "We're also acquiring a new bass boat and several campers."

And for people looking to use something for more than a day or two, Gurr said rental options are changing.

"Outdoor Rec is expanding its pricing to include weekly rentals on all items beginning June 1," he said. "This new weekly rate will allow customers to rent a piece of equipment for seven days, but they'll only be charged for five."

Several Outdoor Rec items can be reserved up to 30 days in advance, including campers and boats, and smaller items like tents and canopies.

With the exception of boat reservations, individuals simply need a base I.D. and a $5 deposit to reserve equipment, Gurr said.

Customers must successfully pass the boaters safety course provided by the shop to reserve a boat.

While the Heritage Club Pool is being prepped for its opening on Saturday, a new Splash Park is being added to the area to provide families with a more energetic way to stay cool in the Georgia heat.

A variety of outings, like an Atlanta Braves game trip set for June 20, are being offered.

"A chartered bus will be picking us up from Outdoor Rec's front door and bringing us back once the game is over," Gurr said. "This allows individuals not to have to worry about Atlanta traffic or parking and allows every individual to take advantage of all of the fun at Turner Stadium."

Outdoor Rec will wrap up the summer with another Deep Sea Fishing trip to Savannah on Aug. 8.
