About Nathan Benderson Park
Located in Sarasota, Florida, Nathan Benderson Park (NBP) is a unique 600-acre community park slated to become North America’s premier 2,000-meter sprint rowing course and Regatta Center.
One of a handful of sites in the United States identified as having all of the natural attributes that make up a world class rowing and recreational facility, Nathan Benderson Park began hosting organized regatta competitions in 2009.
Over $40 million has been committed to the facility’s development, including 2,000 meter racing lanes and straight shorelines, coaching lanes, wave attenuation, starting huts and state-of-the-art finish tower.
As a result, the community park offers the perfect destination for a range of championship and recreational events, vendor opportunities, team training and development trips, and so much more.
Pre-Competition Training is available Tuesday September 18th through Sunday September 23rd from 8:00am - 11:00am and 3:00pm - 6:00pm each day. Training time ends 45 minutes before the venue closes.
Monday September 24th - Venue Closed for Official Practice.
