Boathouse District gaining amenities, events


Since 2016, Oklahoma City’s Boathouse District has been drawing adventure enthusiasts, Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls and those with an interest in paddlesports to the Oklahoma River. Now, the district is expanding with new amenities and events that will draw local and national crowds to the area.

The Boathouse District will play host to the 2020 International Canoe Federation Canoe Sprint Super Cup on Aug. 21 and 22. The internationally televised event will bring the best canoe sprint athletes in the world to compete in men’s and women’s kayak and canoe races, only two weeks after competing at the Tokyo Olympic Games. Previously held in Russia and China, this will be the first time the United States will host the event since its debut in 2018, and the first time the event will take place at night under lights. The course lighting was one of the first MAPS 3 projects to be constructed.
