Regatta History

The Indianapolis Rowing Center hosts multiple events throughout the year at our facility in Eagle Creek Park. These events draw junior, collegiate and masters rowers to the Indianapolis area.

In 1984 Indianapolis made the commitment to build a rowing course in the north pool of the reservoir and to bid for the World Rowing Championships. The development of the rowing course was fast tracked when Indianapolis was unexpectedly awarded the 1987 Pan American Games after it was determined that Cuba was unable to host the games. The success of the Pan American Games regatta led to Indianapolis being awarded the 1994 World Rowing Championships.

The rowing course at Eagle Creek has hosted many national and regional championships and is one of the country’s premiere venues.
