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.
