Passaic River Rowing Association

 File 000

The Bergen County Department of Parks and the Passaic River Rowing Association (PRRA) have formed a partnership to bring community rowing to Riverside County Park located within Lyndhurst and North Arlington. Through a lease agreement with the County, PRRA is converting a vacant riverside structure into a boathouse and has secured permits and funding for a 120' long public access floating dock with construction anticipated in the Spring 2006.

Rowing programs will officially commence in Spring 2006, offering Bergen County Park users a unique opportunity to learn to row and to participate in the sport of rowing. In addition, the new dock will create convenient access to the Passaic River, expanding the recreational opportunities for users of Riverside County Park South. For more information and current membership fees, please visit www.prra.org or email prra.row3@verizon.net.
