Tidewater Boating Center / Martin Luther King Shoreline

The Tidewater area of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Regional Shoreline is the site of the Tidewater Boating Center which includes a boathouse and programs in competitive rowing, sea kayaking and canoeing, classes in boating and water safety, and boat rentals. Outreach to local youth will be an important element of the programs. 

The Tidewater Boating Center facilities include a East Bay Regional Parks meeting room, training area, security residence, public dock, and storage for various types of boats.  In addition, one building serves as the new home of the Oakland Strokes rowing team. The Boating Center location is shown below, just to the left of the green developed park areas.
