The boat storage building is 13,171 square feet and includes a rowing office, four team storage bays, a heated boat storage repair bay, vending area and a clear span boat storage space that includes five unheated boat storage bays to store 66 rowing shells and support equipment.

Park No. 571 also features site improvements including a floating boat launch dock in the Chicago River, walkways, new lighting, outdoor fitness equipment, installation of landscape plantings and eight parking spaces.  There is acess to Wi-Fi both indoor and outdoor areas.

History

The City acquired property located at Eleanor Street and Fuller Street, adjacent to the Chicago River and in the Bridgeport Community Area.  The City transferred this property to the Chicago Park District in 2012 to create this park with river access.  The Chicago Park District is reclaiming the Chicago River as a major system of parks and water-based recreation for all Chicagoans with the creation of four new boathouses and river launches. The first two boathouses opened in 2013 (Ping Tom and Clark Park). The third location at River Park was completed in 2014. The fourth Boathouse is at Park 571 (2828 S. Eleanor).
