The objective of this project was to determine the feasibility of a rowing center for the University of Kansas Crew on the Kansas River waterfront. The study surveyed over fifteen individual site alternatives and evaluated their feasibility relative to many issues unique to the sport of rowing. Burcham Park was selected as the prime location for the rowing center.
A site of approximately 2.5 acres was identified to accommodate an 8,000 square foot boathouse with parking and dock access. To retain the park's tranquil atmosphere, the site plan was designed to minimize the center's impact on the existing terrain and activity areas.
