BAINBRIDGE – The Bainbridge Island Planning Commission has unanimously approved design plans for a rowing center in Waterfront Park. Bainbridge Island Rowing officials said that the facility will enable them to expand both Junior and Master programs and better meet the community’s growing interest in the sport of rowing.

The new rowing center is designed to be a 12,000-square-foot, two-story structure to be located on the eastern edge of the park with boat and oar storage on the ground floor. The second floor will feature locker rooms and a multi-purpose room that will be used for indoor training as well as public community events.

The addition of the rowing center is one of several upgrades planned for the park.

Bainbridge Island Rowing has announced it will conduct a fundraising campaign to pay for construction of the center.
