The Bandemer Park Boathouse Pavilion serves as both a boathouse for local crew clubs and a picnic pavilion for the general public. The form of the structure arose out of studies of the elliptical movement of oars and the forward projection of a scull. The pavilion is built into an existing berm, and it features open-air picnic areas and outdoor seating for viewing races.
