Rowing a boat in Central Park is one of the most quintessential NYC experiences!  Join a fun group of members and friends as we enjoy a peaceful hour of socializing and taking in the sights and sounds that surround the lake.  Following the boat trip, we will find a nice place to sit and enjoy a picnic lunch.

How it works:  

  • The group will meet in front of The Dakota (John Lennon’s Home) 10am sharp.
  • We will walk over together to the boathouse and get into the boats.  You can all take turns rowing or designate a boat captain.  (4 persons per boat)
  • We will have one hour to explore the lake.
  • Following the boat ride, we will find a nice area to sit and enjoy lunch. You’re welcome to bring your own lunch or grab something for purchase in the park.

Cost $20 General admission / $15 Lifetime VIP members: Includes boat rental and host fee contribution.
