Argo and Gallup Canoe Liveries Temporarily Closed following positive COVID-19 test

Beginning Tuesday afternoon, July 7, 2020, City of Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation Argo and Gallup canoe liveries will be closed temporarily. The closure is due to a COVID-19 positive test result of an individual who, while pre-symptomatic, was at the liveries. Washtenaw County Public Health is deeming this a “low risk” event, but out of an abundance of caution, the facilities will be closed for a professional, disinfectant cleaning. The city has not identified any instance of this person having close contact with the public. More information on the reopening of the facilities will be announced in the coming days.

If you visited the Argo or Gallup canoe liveries between June 19 and July 3, please self-monitor for any COVID-19 symptoms and seek advice from your physician if you have concerns. COVID-19-related questions may also be directed to the Washtenaw County Health Department at or 734.544.6700; please leave a message. Voicemail messages are checked several times each weekday, and calls will be returned within 24 hours or sooner.

The city apologizes for this inconvenience and appreciates patience from the public while the facilities are closed. Updates, as available, will be shared on the canoe liveries website,, and social media.
