Parking for team buses and trailers will be available at Riverside Boat Club. A parking director will be present on race day to assist with the parking of trailers/buses. We ask that coaches plan to arrive with their trailers slightly before their team buses due to the nature of the parking lot at Riverside.
Please pass along the following parking information to your spectators.
There will be no spectator parking available at Riverside Boat Club on race day. We recommend that spectators park further away in parking garages in Central Square or Harvard Square. Since it is Sunday, all side streets around the boathouse will be available for parking all day (free parking on Sundays). There is a limited public parking lot at Magazine Beach near the BU Bridge on the eastbound side of Memorial Drive as well as metered spots along Commonwealth Avenue across the BU Bridge on the shore opposite Riverside.
The Trader Joes/ Microcenter/ Starbucks lot across the street does not tolerate event parking and has been known to ticket and/or tow. Simmons College and Riverside Boat Club cannot be held responsible for ticketed/towed spectator cars.
