Welcome to the Genesee Waterways Center!

We are a not-for-profit organization located in Western New York State that promotes canoeing, kayaking, rowing and sculling on the unique waterways of the Genesee Region.     
At the Boathouse in Genesee Valley Park, you can enroll in one of our rowing, sculling or outrigger canoeing courses.  We have 600 feet of accessible docks that comply with the ADA and are the entry point to the scenic waterways and the trails surrounding GWC. Our rental facility gives people access to canoes, flatwater kayaks, and soon adapted cycles.  From the boathouse you can also walk or bike along the many green trails that connect right from our doorstep.

GWC’s Lock 32 Whitewater Park in Pittsford is the only man-made whitewater course in New York State; at this facility we offer whitewater and flatwater kayaking programs and equipment rentals, swift water rescue training, and ACA instruction certification classes.  It is a dynamic park that draws people of all ages to the water!
