LPBC has been a fixture in Chicago for more than 100 years
Lincoln Park Boat Club is the oldest facility in Chicago that provides boats, classes, and a range of competitive training opportunities for men's and women's rowing, sculling, and paddling. It all began on June 8, 1910, when four smaller boat clubs -- the Catlin, Union, Iroquois, and Chicago Rowing and Canoe Club -- joined forces to build our current boat house and launching facilities.
