Directions to
Cambridge Boat Club
2 Gerry's Landing, Cambridge, MA 02138
Cambridge Boat Club on Google Maps

The Cambridge Boat Club is right on the Charles River, on the Cambridge side, right at the convergence of the Eliot Bridge, Memorial Drive, Fresh Pond Parkway, and Greenough Blvd. There is a complex set of traffic lights and forks in this area. It is very near the new Athletic Center for Buckingham, Browne, and Nichols (BB&N) School and the Mt Auburn Hospital.

The Cambridge Boat Club is a grey stucco building with bright blue shutters. A smaller red building next door is a good landmark.
