Port district and city officials recently marked the opening of the renovated Coronado Club Room and Boathouse. The 5,000-square-foot facility, at 1985 Strand Way on Glorietta Bay in Coronado, is LEED-certified and designed with sustainable materials to use less water and energy.
The Port of San Diego contributed $1.5 million toward the redevelopment through its capital improvement program, according to a port district statement. The facility includes boat storage, a multi-purpose club room, classroom, kitchen, administrative office space and public restrooms.
Vessels will be available for rent, and there will be classes in kayaking, stand-up paddle-boarding and rowing, as well as boat safety.
The facility now includes public artwork by sculptor Kim Ogburn, called “Sea Level,” depicting an above-and-below-water look at a kelp forest, purchased by the city of Coronado from the artist.
The city has scheduled a grand opening festival for Oct. 6, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
