The Greater Dayton Rowing Association (GDRA) boathouse is on Island MetroPark along the banks of the Great Miami River, just north of downtown Dayton at 102 East Helena Street, Dayton, Ohio 45404.
The entire island is a beautifully maintained park, operated by Five Rivers MetroParks. GDRA shares the island with a popular public park on the northern half and a water rescue squad on the southern half, just across the parking lot from our boathouse. Built in 1995, the boathouse provides a secure location for our shells, oars, and other equipment. We have additional storage space for our boats and safety launches in a fenced and roofed boatyard close by. A 96-foot dock, manufactured and installed by AccuDock, replaced the original wooden docks and now provides ample space for launching and landing our boats.
