The South End Rowing Club, founded May 5, 1873, is the oldest rowing club west of the Mississippi. Originally located at the foot of Third Street, the club was moved by barge to Aquatic Park in 1908, finally coming to its current home at
500 Jefferson Street in 1938.
We are a community that combines world class rowing, swimming, handball and running with a multi-generational membership that is inclusive, welcoming, and supportive. South Enders have achieved national and international recognition in all sports.
Whether it is because it provides us with the opportunities to challenge ourselves or simply to be ourselves, the South End forms an important part of our lives.
Aquatic Park Pier
Your help is needed! Aquatic Park Pier is deteriorating and may soon be closed because of safety concerns. The pier defines and protects the cove where our club is based.
Help us by donating to Save Aquatic Park Pier, a citizen-led effort to raise awareness and money to rebuild it.
