The Forest Hills Boathouse was opened in April of 2002 and officially dedicated on September 24, 2002. The facility and docks were constructed during the winter of 2001/2002 with much help from the school district and many parent volunteers. The property that the boathouse sits on, nearly 3 acres, was donated by Mick McGraw of Eastbrook Homes. The rowing teams owe a great amount of gratitude to Mr. McGraw as well as Mr. Bob Kullgren. It was Mr. Kullgren who worked tirelessly to locate property for the teams. Bob was instrumental in clearing the way with the School District, Cascade Township, Rail America, the MDEQ and many others so that this outstanding facility could be realized. Without Bob's help, this facility would still only be a dream.
The boathouse measures 100' x 54' x 14' and includes a 100' x 10' floating dock. The facility houses all the equipment and provides a home for the three Forest Hills High School rowing programs; Forest Hills Central, Eastern and Northern. The facility is used during the spring for the high school programs and during the summer and fall for off-season conditioning as well as adult learn-to-row programs and crew camps.
