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?


An amazing boathouse in the heart of Fremont, modern equipment, a full gym, a lounge and a lot of flexibility and freedom make Lake Washington unique.


We offer a number of masters rowing programs throughout the year that cater to different experience levels and schedules. Our experienced coaches teach in small groups.


Lake Washington is a supportive community of athletes who are passionate about rowing. We drive each other to be better rowers and have fun together on and off the water.


Lake Washington Rowing Club is the oldest rowing club in Seattle with a rich history and a long legacy of teaching the art of rowing. The club is entirely run by volunteers.
