Boathouse Mission and News


The Oaks Park Boathouse was founded in 1989 and managed until 2015 by Oregon Rowing Unlimited (ORU) and is home to four club programs; ORU, Willamette Rowing Club, Lewis & Clark College Crew, and Portland Kayak and Canoe Team.  

The Oaks Park Community Boathouse (OPCB), an Oregon Nonprofit incorporated by the four clubs resident in the boathouse, took over management January of 2016 and has as its mission the effective and ongoing management of the Boathouse, supporting the mission of the four founding clubs, providing a home for private rowers and paddlers, and the improvement of the facility and dock for the benefit of all boathouse tenants. 

OPCB has contracted with Lewis & Clark College crew to provide day-to-day management of the boathouse.  Please contact the boathouse manager for information about rack rentals or questions about the facilities.
