Welcome to the Waller Creek Boathouse
Established in 2012, the Waller Creek Boathouse is nestled against Lady Bird Lake in downtown Austin, only minutes from everything Austin has to offer. Rent kayaks and stand-up paddle boards, learn how to row, take an indoor rowing class, or just relax on the patio overlooking the lake while enjoying a drink and a snack.
The Waller Creek Boathouse is one of Austin's unique venues, offering a quiet oasis in the middle of the city where you can get fit, relax or even host a special event. We're delighted to have you visit our Boathouse.
Come, stay awhile.
Please help us do our part to limit the spread of COVID-19. Boathouse patrons are asked to bring their own face covering and wear it while visiting with us. We understand that people have differing views on wearing face coverings. Patrons may wear a non-restrictive alternative such as a face shield with a drape on the bottom edge.
