Ground Breaking for Conshohocken Rowing Center on Sunday

Conshohocken Borough Council will join representatives of Malvern Preparatory School and the Haverford School on Sunday, December 2, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. for a ceremonial groundbreaking for the Conshohocken Rowing Center. The Rowing Center will be the first joint private and public recreational facility in the Borough.

The Rowing Center will be constructed on the Borough’s 100-ft strip along the Schuylkill River waterfront and will include three boat bays, locker rooms, club rooms and a deck which will provide perfect viewing for rowing fans.

The state-of-the-art Rowing Center will serve as the home and practice center for Malvern Prep and the Haverford School rowing teams. Additionally, Conshohocken residents will be able to join the Rowing Center and use it to gain access to the Schuylkill for rowing, kayaking, and other forms of recreation and sports. The Conshohocken Rowing Center will help to promote rowing and kayaking and will work with the Fellowship House to administer swim lessons for residents in Conshohocken.

This facility is three years in the making. Please come out to celebrate the launch of this exciting project and new opportunity for recreation in the Borough.
