About the Boathouse District

The Boathouse District is a unique destination for athletes, metro area families and visitors to Oklahoma City. Athletes look forward to rowing or paddling on the district’s world-class 4000m race and training course, while families and visitors can get on the water in a kayak or stand up paddle board, take a bike ride on the 13+ miles of trails or – most popular – enjoy RIVERSPORT Adventures.

RIVERSPORT Adventures offers exciting outdoor activities for all ages. Buy a pass and climb to the top of the SandRidge Sky Trail, slide down the 72-foot Sky Slide, step off the Rumble Drop or reach for the sky on the 700-foot SandRidge Sky Zip across the Oklahoma River. You’ll also find climbing walls, a bicycle pump track, bouncing pillow and youth zone for younger kids. Dragon boating and kayaking are offered during warmer months.

We also invite you to enjoy the art and architecture of the Boathouse District. The Compass Rose sculpture by internationally acclaimed artist Owen Morrell graces the entrance to the Boathouse District, and everyone appreciates the iconic architecture of the structures along the river, each designed by architect Rand Elliott, Elliott & Associates.  When the new CHK|Central Boathouse is complete, it will include both a jazz lab and an art gallery. Together, the architecture and athleticism of the Boathouse District are becoming recognized as a world-class destination by local and international visitors alike.

Additional plans for the Boathouse District include a $32 million Whitewater Rafting & Kayaking Center and construction of the Oklahoma River Stadium – grandstands, floating stage, permanent lighting, additional race infrastructure. Both will be completed as part of the city’s MAPS 3 projects. [learn more]
