CHK|Central Boathouse

The CHK|Central Boathouse will serve as home to the University of Central Oklahoma’s women’s rowing team. It will also include 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.

“Both Oklahoma City and the University of Central Oklahoma are enjoying a time of positive change and transformation, and the development of the Boathouse District is an important part of it,” said UCO President Roger Webb.

“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 is complete and construction is currently underway. [more]
