Detailed River & Facility Information at our Newton Boathouse Location
Charles River Canoe & Kayak’s Newton: Historic Boathouse
Like all our locations, we offer group discounts during non-peak hours to groups renting eight boats or more. If you’re renting fewer than eight boats, just come down — it’s rare that we run out of boats. During our peak hours, reservations require pre-payment of the first hour of rental and an additional reservation fee.
Where to Stop While Paddling
There are a number of locations where paddlers can stop to eat, rest, or walk. State-owned Forest Grove Park is a small peninsula with a sand beach and short, informal walking trails located about a mile upstream.
The City of Newton’s Auburndale Park is located about 1.5 miles upstream, and offers a sand beach, playground, ballfields, picnic area, and seasonal restrooms (learn more below). See our Paddling Map for other locations.
