About Harry Parker Boathouse

Community Rowing Inc. (CRI) was founded in 1985 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to the belief that the sport of rowing provides unique opportunities to promote personal and community growth through teamwork, discipline, and physical fitness. We are committed to making these opportunities available to all. CRI has become one of the largest rowing programs in the United States, with more than 5,000 people rowing with us annually.

Located on the Charles River, an internationally recognized attraction for rowing and a gem within the Massachusetts park system, CRI was the first public rowing club in Boston and remains one of the largest in the United States.

CRI is committed to its mission of enriching the greater community and provides broad-based programs for youth and adult of all skill levels—from novice to elite. Since its inception, CRI has provided education and training for more than 30,000 people, including:

  • Youth (boys and girls) from local high schools
  • Individuals with special needs such as sensory and mobility disabilities from Perkins School for the Blind and other institutions
  • Adults of all levels of ability through recreational and competitive programs
  • Olympians and National Team Rowers
  • National Champions in Women’s, Men’s, and Girls’ Competitive teams

CRI can be transformed from a hub of athletic endeavors into a province of sophistication and celebration, leveraging all elements that make the boathouse distinctive.

    The boathouse was an incredible location. We were looking for a venue that would be appropriate for both a ceremony and reception, close enough to the airport since we had a number of out-of-town guests coming in, parking, and beautiful! Not a lot to ask for right? :) We found that with the boathouse. From my first conversation with Sharanya, the boathouse coordinator, I felt in good hands and taken care of! Sharanya responded promptly to emails, addressed any concerns and helped to trouble shoot some issues that came up. Guests raved about how peaceful and beautiful the location was. Truly an amazing spot and I am so grateful we were able to book it. Make sure to book early! There's isn't a kitchen on premises, so something to think about when you're booking the space.

    Working with the event coordinators was easy and they were very flexible to our needs. Because we had people in the area and others were coming from out of town, they were willing to meet with each group and show us the facilities.
