To obtain permission to launch from the Riverside Boat Club docks for any race or practice, all crews must fill out and submit this agreement at least two weeks prior to date of use. We will limit the number of crews launching to three per day on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Parking: All vehicles including boat trailers must park on pavement. The parking lot is extremely small, so not all trailers will fit. Local crews should row their boats up and NOT trailer. Any vehicles parked on the grass will be reported to the State Police and will be towed. Please use the parking areas next to the boathouse, MDC pool or the ball fields. The Micro Center/Starbucks parking lot is often towed. Residential areas only allow parking for non-residents on Sundays.
- Access: No visiting crew members are allowed inside of Riverside Boat Club. Please use the upstream swinging ramp to access the docks.
- Launching: Crews must not tie up the docks when landing and launching. Please move your boats out of the water and off the docks as quickly as possible. Please Launch in the upstream direction.
- Clean-up: The docks and parkland must be left in good condition when you leave. Take all trash with you or leave in the trash cans provided.
Be advised: Boat trailers and all commercial vehicles are prohibited from traveling on all MDC roadways including Memorial Drive. Riverside Boat Club is only accessible by Memorial Drive. The State Police will allow trailers to travel eastbound on Memorial Drive from the River Street Bridge (Mass Pike) to Riverside Boat Club, and west bound to Western Ave. Bridge (return to Mass Pike) ONLY. Any other travel is prohibited. If you need to travel any other part of Memorial Drive you must contact the State Police at 617-727-6780.
