The Central Park Boathouse

Imagine celebrating at the one of the most magical locations in the world. Plan your wedding at The Loeb Boathouse Central Park and create one-of-a-kind moments and memories in one of New York City's most iconic venues.

A haven for romantics and nature lovers, this understated icon offers a rare tranquility within the ever-eclectic energy that defines Manhattan. True to its name — rowboats drift about the adjacent lake, as they have for over 150 years.

Whether celebrating a special anniversary, meeting an old friend for lunch or enjoying a little spontaneous refreshment—The Loeb Boathouse offers one-of-a-kind choices to satisfy all of your senses.

Designed to beautifully coexist with its natural surroundings, The Loeb Boathouse is the only Manhattan venue right on a lake—allowing you to host your wedding, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, or corporate event in spectacular fashion.

While you’re here, why not join a 150-year-old tradition and explore the lake in a rented rowboat. Better yet, take a ride in an authentic Venetian gondola. With any luck, your gondolier might even break into song.

Also, listen for the calls of many indigenous birds, as The Loeb Boathouse is a haven for avid birdwatchers. Proof can be found in the official “Bird Register,” an unpretentious 2-inch loose-leaf notebook where observations are recorded.

And finally, don’t forget to look for butterflies. To date, twenty-six species have been noted!
