Parking at our Newton Boathouse

The tiny parking lot adjacent to the boathouse is only for visitors with disabilities, customers purchasing items at our Paddling Store, and pickup or drop-off of passengers and boats. All other parking, including parking for rentals and classes, is across the river in the free Norumbega Road lot, a short 5-minute round trip. From our boathouse parking lot, take every right (onto Rt. 30 West, Rt. 128 Northbound entrance, Norumbega Road, and into the parking lot), then use the stairs at the far end of the lot to return to Rt. 30 and cross the bridge.
