The Village Community Boathouse and the Prospect Park Alliance are offering free public rowing on Prospect Park Lake this summer. Community rowing sessions run from noon until 4:00 PM on the following Saturdays: June 14, 21, and 28 July 12, 19, and 26 August 2, 9, 16, and 23 And from 4-7 PM on the following Thursdays: September 11, 18 and 25 WHO CAN PARTICIPATE: Community rowing is open to all, although some physical dexterity is required. The focus of the program is recreation in a safe and respectful environment. Each participant must sign a waiver. Life jackets are provided—and must be worn! WHAT WE ROW: We use a diverse fleet of traditional wooden rowing boats, built by volunteers and similar in shape and appearance to those used in the early days of park rowing. WHERE WE ARE BASED: Boats are launched from the ramp on Well House Drive near the south end of the lake. Our temporary boathouse, a shipping container, is located near the Vanderbilt Playground.
