The Arlington Boathouse Foundation

Home | FAQs | Location | History | A Good Idea 


In response to a charge by Congress to recommend a site for a boathouse on the Arlington side of the river, the National Park Service is currently studying four potential sites on the Virginia side of the Potomac. They have met with the Arlington County Board-appointed Water-based Recreational Facility Task Force to clarify the intended users of a new boathouse, seeking to clarify the necessary program elements and footprint of the building.

The Foundation favors a combination of the Upper Key Bridge and Lower Key Bridge alternatives. Boat storage, floating docks, and staging area would be located on the Lower Key Bridge site, while other support functions would be located in a facility on the Upper Key Bridge site.
