The Gateway Bike & Boathouse, Inc, a 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization has been offering volunteer-run kayaking in the Rockaways since 2008.  Programming is offered in two locations. In the west, we work with the National Park Service at Gateway National Recreation Area in Riis Landing.
In the east, we work with New York City Parks at Bay Breeze Park in Rockaway Beach.

We look forward to your participation either as a paddler or volunteer.

A Community Run Organization

Boy Scout Troop 298 from Brooklyn took on the challenge of converting two 20′ shipping containers into boathouses.  Several other community groups have also gotten in on the act including the Jamaica Bay and Rockaway Parks Conservancy, Rockaway Beach Civic Association, the American Littoral Society and the Gateway Bike & Boathouse.
