Tidewater Boating Center was opened 2011 at the northwest end of Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline, off Tidewater Avenue in Oakland, on the shore of the Oakland Estuary in San Leandro Bay. This shoreline complex has an ADA accessible dock that is a popular launch area for kayakers. Also available are turf sites for picnicking and shoreline access for fishing. The 12,300-square-foot complex consists of a boathouse, training area, boat storage facility, Recreation Department offices, and a security residence. The Oakland Strokes, a non-profit junior rowing organization for middle and high schools, operates the main boathouse and indoor training area and provides outreach to neighborhood youths in the sport of competitive rowing. Other organizations provide on-the-water experiences with boating and water safety, sea kayaking, canoeing, and other water-related recreational programs. Park District recreation programs take advantage of the estuary access and the Bay Trail connection at the park, and include biking, nature study, kayaking, and canoeing programs. ebparks.org/parks/martinlking
