Join Village Community Boathouse's special new public rowing program on Van Cortlandt Park Lake in the Bronx!

This is a great chance to explore a beautiful park, learn to use the sculling boat, and introduce others to the joy of rowing. Community rowing is free and open to all; no experience or reservations necessary.

Check the Village Community Boathouse's social media feeds on Facebook and Twitter for possible last-minute changes due to weather or other circumstances. Or, visit their website at VCB.NYC. Email mailinglist@vcb.nyc to join the mailing list for updates.

For specifics on the Van Cortlandt Park lake row, please email VCPark@vcb.nyc.

Volunteers
We always apprecite volunteers. Those kind enough to help with the setup, please go to the container in the parking lot south of the lake. Volunteers should meet at 4:00 p.m.

About Free Community Rowing
The Community Rows are free sessions that include a basic introduction to rowing for first timers (safety orientation, rowing technique, and terminology) and of course plenty of actual rowing on the Hudson River. The rows take place in five-person wooden rowboats that Village Community Boathouse builds onsite. The rows last, depending on river conditions and rower level experience, between one and three hours.Most of these rows have mixed crews with those that have never been on the river before and some old hands. Visit the Village Community Boathouse's website for more information and photos!

Join Village Community Boathouse's special new public rowing program on Van Cortlandt Park Lake in the Bronx!

This is a great chance to explore a beautiful park, learn to use the sculling boat, and introduce others to the joy of rowing. Community rowing is free and open to all; no experience or reservations necessary.

Check the Village Community Boathouse's social media feeds on Facebook and Twitter for possible last-minute changes due to weather or other circumstances. Or, visit their website at VCB.NYC. Email mailinglist@vcb.nyc to join the mailing list for updates.

For specifics on the Van Cortlandt Park lake row, please email VCPark@vcb.nyc.

Volunteers
We always apprecite volunteers. Those kind enough to help with the setup, please go to the container in the parking lot south of the lake. Volunteers should meet at 4:00 p.m.

About Free Community Rowing
The Community Rows are free sessions that include a basic introduction to rowing for first timers (safety orientation, rowing technique, and terminology) and of course plenty of actual rowing on the Hudson River. The rows take place in five-person wooden rowboats that Village Community Boathouse builds onsite. The rows last, depending on river conditions and rower level experience, between one and three hours.Most of these rows have mixed crews with those that have never been on the river before and some old hands. Visit the Village Community Boathouse's website for more information and photos!

Check the Village Community Boathouse's social media feeds on Facebook and Twitter for possible last-minute changes due to weather or other circumstances. Or, visit their website at VCB.NYC. Email mailinglist@vcb.nyc to join the mailing list for updates.

About Free Community Rowing
The Community Rows are free sessions that include a basic introduction to rowing for first timers (safety orientation, rowing technique, and terminology) and of course plenty of actual rowing on the Hudson River. The rows take place in five-person wooden rowboats that Village Community Boathouse builds onsite. The rows last, depending on river conditions and rower level experience, between one and three hours.Most of these rows have mixed crews with those that have never been on the river before and some old hands. Visit the Village Community Boathouse's website for more information and photos!

Join Village Community Boathouse's special new public rowing program on Van Cortlandt Park Lake in the Bronx!

This is a great chance to explore a beautiful park, learn to use the sculling boat, and introduce others to the joy of rowing. Community rowing is free and open to all; no experience or reservations necessary.

Check the Village Community Boathouse's social media feeds on Facebook and Twitter for possible last-minute changes due to weather or other circumstances. Or, visit their website at VCB.NYC. Email mailinglist@vcb.nyc to join the mailing list for updates.

For specifics on the Van Cortlandt Park lake row, please email VCPark@vcb.nyc.

Volunteers
We always apprecite volunteers. Those kind enough to help with the setup, please go to the container in the parking lot south of the lake. Volunteers should meet at 4:00 p.m.

About Free Community Rowing
The Community Rows are free sessions that include a basic introduction to rowing for first timers (safety orientation, rowing technique, and terminology) and of course plenty of actual rowing on the Hudson River. The rows take place in five-person wooden rowboats that Village Community Boathouse builds onsite. The rows last, depending on river conditions and rower level experience, between one and three hours.Most of these rows have mixed crews with those that have never been on the river before and some old hands. Visit the Village Community Boathouse's website for more information and photos!
