Parking at the Pond
  • Absolutely NO parking at the beach for summer rowing for Harvard residents without parking stickers and for non-residents. Please use the lot at the top of the hill (below the library lot). It’s a 5’ walk to the pond on the path to the right of the road.
  • Harvard residents WITH beach stickers who are only participating in the rowing program are asked to park in the lot at the top of the hill (not library) as well. This is to ensure parking at the beach for those folks taking programs offered by the town. BHRA requests your cooperation.

To keep everyone safe and healthy, BHRA protocols for our summer season that include social distancing and cleaning measures. All boats will launch from  BHRA dock located near the  Town  dock. A BHRA daily health "check-in" will be implemented either by at site check-in (Learn to Row & Sculling programs) or online line through TeamSnap (competitive team) 

Please adhere to these guidelines to ensure everyone can stay healthy and safe on the water.  You will be asked to agree to each of these protocols in the registration.

  2. To ensure social distancing, Participant agrees to maintain the appropriate  distance while at the pond, getting and returning equipment and coming in to, leaving from and while on the dock.

  3. Participant agrees to comply with all BHRA safety and cleaning protocols as instructed, including sanitizing  hands before and after rowing.
