Overpeck Lake Training and Regatta Center, New Jersey*
Overpeck Lake Training and Regatta Center*
8 Bell Drive
Ridgefield, NJ 07657
New York Rowing's New Jersey Junior programs are operating at this secure location.
The Bruderer Corporation of Ridgefield Park, New Jersey donated 2.36 acres of land on Overpeck Lake to New York Rowing for the establishment of the Overpeck Lake Training and Regatta Center. Overpeck Lake, unlike many other rowing venues, is not in a remote location and is accessible by several major highways, airports and mass transportation facilities. The lake is approximately a 10 -15 minute drive from either the George Washington Bridge or the Lincoln Tunnel as well as a few minutes away from the Meadowlands Sports Complex. Overpeck Lake is a man-made lake sheltered on all sides by gently sloping hills and adjacent to the newly renovated ($110 million) Overpeck Creek County Park. The park provides excellent unobstructed start to finish sight lines of the planned racecourse. The planned five lane racecourse will be straight and fair with average water depths in excess of 2 meters. New York Rowing plans to use its new property to host regional and national rowing competitions on Overpeck Lake as well as community rowing, kayak, canoe and dragon boat racing events.
*Regatta Center Development pending. Please inquire with firstname.lastname@example.org about scheduling your regatta!

The New Rochelle Rowing Club is located in Hudson Park. Hudson Park encompasses 13 acres along the city’s harbor front and includes a beach for residents, a city boathouse, greenhouses, the shore station of the United States Coast Guard and several yacht clubs. The park is traditionally been identified as the original landing place of the Huguenot settlers. A granite boulder with bronze tablets commemorates the event. The club’s rowing programs and its historic 6,000 square foot boathouse, built in 1880, are managed by the New York Rowing Association. Long Island Sound (also referred to as “the Sound”) is an estuary of the Atlantic Ocean and numerous rivers located between Connecticut to the north and Long Island and New York City to the south. On its western end the sound is bounded to the north by Westchester County and the Bronx, and connects to the East River. On its eastern end it opens to Block Island Sound.
