Description

Nathan Benderson Park is located in Sarasota, Florida. It is North America's premier 2,000-meter sprint course and regatta center. Over $40 million is committed to the facility's future development, including a multi-function boathouse and athlete training center, starting huts and finish towers, grand stands and a state of the art boat maintenance and testing facility. Most of these facilities will be constructed on a first of its kind "regatta island” – an Olympic Village type setting which will provide competitors the support and focus which rowing demands, and spectators a viewing and entertainment platform unparalleled at sprint courses elsewhere in the world.
The Park will also be home to numerous other paddle sport competitions, from dragon boats to canoe and kayak races, as well as triathlon and cross country events. And to top it all off, the Park is located immediately adjacent to University Town Center – Southwest Florida's premier shopping, dining and entertainment destination opening in October 2014!
