Nathan Benderson Park
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.
More than $40 million has been committed to the facility’s development, including nine 2,000-meter racing lanes and straight shorelines, coaching lanes, wave attenuation, a multi-function boathouse and athlete training center, starting huts and finish towers, grand stands and a state-of-the-art-boat maintenance and testing facility.
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.
