Garfield Boathouse

The Garfield boathouse is a satellite boathouse on Lake Union.

Moored along the banks of the southeastern shore of Lake Union, at the end of East Garfield Street, tucked between NOAA ships to the north and Lake Union Dry-Dock Co. to the south, lives Lake Washington Rowing Club’s original boathouse.

With a substantial floating dock that holds several of the club’s single and double wherries, the Garfield boathouse is home to an array of sculling shells. It provides storage space for privately owned boats for those rowers who enjoy the convenience of a South Lake Union access.


Why Row at
Lake Washington?


Our coaches are very experienced at teaching new rowers the skills needed to move comfortably across the water. They are also avid rowers and very friendly. Learn from the best.


We offer a number of Learn to Row Sculling programs throughout the year that will work with your schedule. We teach in small groups for the optimal learning experience and our programs are very affordable.


An amazing boathouse in the heart of Fremont, a wide range of rowing programs, modern equipment, a full gym, and a wonderful community make Lake Washington unique.


Lake Washington is the oldest rowing club in Seattle with a mission to teach the art of rowing to the local community and spread the joy that comes with this beautiful sport.
