Newton: Historic Boathouse

Come paddle at the historic boathouse in Newton!

Enjoy the historic Lakes District of the Charles, a six-mile stretch of flatwater with little current. This section of river, which is largely bordered by parkland and forest, was once a haven for canoeists looking to escape the city — and is again today!

In addition to hourly and daily rentals of canoes, kayaks, and SUP boards, we also host relaxing Moonlight Tours and Kayak and Paddleboarding Classes.

  • Here are some Frequently Asked Questions that may help you plan your visit
  • Bring your photo ID everytime you paddle
