Lost River Outdoor Center in Halpatiokee Regional Park in Stuart, FL., on Nov. 3 kicks off its long-awaited grand opening with three days of special events, outdoors adventures, and exclusive retail promotions. From Nov. 3-5 (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) guests and park-goers can take advantage of the center’s ROGO (rent one, get one) offer, which includes single and tandem kayaks, canoes that seat two, and mountain bikes, comfort cruisers, and Class 1 e-bikes. Store merchandise will be discounted 20  percent off, as well.

On Saturday, Nov. 4  at 9:30 a.m., Exhale with Grace’s Grace Coffey will begin the morning with a yoga session overlooking the Lost River. At 10:30 a.m., frequency alchemist Luis Angel Zepeda will lead a healing sound bath, an ancient practice incorporating resonant tones to promote tranquility and recalibrate the body. Beginning at 11:30 a.m., the Love Boat will embark on a series of historical eco tours led by representatives from Discover Martin County.

Florida natives, partners, and twin brothers Keith and Kyle Mang will be on hand to talk about sustainability and strategic innovation like their “Buy One. Plant One.” initiative, which plants a mangrove for every MANG product sold. Fox Racing and WMR Performance Competition – whose cutting-edge sporting goods the center carries – will host interactive bike demonstrations throughout the day. LROC staff will also sherpa guests on guided mountain bike trail tours where they can put their off-road cycling savvy to the test. 

Throughout the weekend, light bites and cold drinks courtesy of Zen Coast will be available at the Kayak Café, located inside Lost River Outdoor Center. Popular food truck purveyor 681 Seafood & Southern Bites will provide food service on Saturday between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Live music performances from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. will feature local musicians of nearby Port St. Lucie. 

On Nov. 5, the Love Boat’s historical eco tours will resume at 9 a.m. followed by a 5K and 10K Trail Run/Walk led by Down to Run co-founders, Andre and Ludi Chaves, at 9:30 a.m. Participants are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes beforehand to warm up and receive instruction. All-day activities include Face Painting By Karla, who will transform little ones into fairy princesses, Disney characters, or their favorite Marvel superheroes, disc golf demonstrations, mountain bike trail tours, and more.
