Become a member of Nathan Benderson Park and take advantage of all the amazing things NBP has to offer.

Receive full access to the Finish Tower as well as a parking pass, 10% off merch, access to boat storage. For some members you can even access rowing equipment as well as receive organized coaching

The park is nice, there are biking and walking trails (covered with asphalt) and there is even a nature trail that runs parallel and close to the walking trail (covered in crushed shells and gravel). There are restrooms and a playground for kids. Overall, it’s a great place to get some fresh air, go for a stroll, and catch a glimpse of herons, limpkins, ducks, and egrets.

Fun for the whole family

Located in Sarasota, Fla., Nathan Benderson Park (NBP) is a unique 600-acre community park that includes North America’s premier 2,000-meter sprint rowing course and a 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.
