Boating

Rent a boat and adventure out onto the Lake. Get a closer look at the historic boat landings that line the water’s edge, or paddle around and enjoy views of Bow Bridge and Bethesda Terrace. The Lake encircles part of the Ramble, a 36-acre woodland restored by the Conservancy, which is home to lots of birds and other wildlife.

Rowboats and gondolas are available for rent at the Loeb Boathouse.

You can also steer radio- and wind-powered model boats across Conservatory Water’s glassy surface, for rent at the adjacent Kerbs Boathouse. (In the winter, this spot occasionally opens for ice skating!)

All boat rentals are available when weather permits.
