About Central Park’s Boathouse
Calvert Vaux designed a two-story boathouse at the eastern end of the Lake in 1874. Visitors could purchase refreshments, take boat rides, and watch other boats. When this wooden Victorian structure with sloping mansard roof burned down, the current Loeb Boathouse took its place in the 1950s.
