The CHK|Central Boathouse serves as home to the University of Central Oklahoma’s women’s rowing team. It also includes a live music venue and an art gallery, establishing it as a unique presence “where art meets the river” in the growing Boathouse District at the Oklahoma River. An ATM is located outside the CHK|Central Boathouse for our guests’ convenience.
“The vision behind the Boathouse District development always involved creating innovative facilities and programs that complement one another, working together to create a dynamic, world class environment unique to Oklahoma City,” said Mike Knopp, executive director of the Oklahoma City Boathouse Foundation. “The CHK|Central Boathouse perfectly advances this vision by introducing the arts to the Boathouse District and helping solidify the Oklahoma River as a destination for the entire community.”
After a generous donation by MidFirst Bank to the University of Central Oklahoma Foundation in January 2013, funding for the CHK|Central Boathouse was completed and the CHK|Central Boathouse opened in April 2015.
