The club was founded in 1892 and provides a visual reminder that America’s oldest women’s rowing club works to preserve its past and encourages future interest in the sport.
The Women’s Rowing Club is one of the original structures in Pacific Beach, built in 1907 and was designed by architect Lillian J. Rice (the architect who supervised the development of Rancho Santa Fe) with landscape design by Kate Sessions, the iconic American botanist, horticulturalist, and landscape architect closely associated with San Diego, California, and known as the “Mother of Balboa Park.” The club was founded in 1892 and provides a visual reminder that America’s oldest women’s rowing club works to preserve its past and encourages future interest in the sport.
Coastal Sage Landscape Architecture led the landscape renovation design to create updated gathering spaces, clear walkways which conform to ADA, modern water-conserving irrigation system and shade fabric in the east courtyard.
The club conducts its business at the facility, and also rents the facility for weddings, parties and gatherings. Landscape restoration included preservation of unique species, reestablishment with new ornamental species and irrigation system redesign.
