Sign Our Waivers
The Woodlands Township Parks and Recreation Department offers an online waiver system that allows guests to move quickly through the equipment rental lines at Riva Row Boat House and Lakes Edge Boat House. Each guest to either boathouse is required to acknowledge liability and fill out a waiver before getting out on the water for a day of fun. Plan on bringing your pet? Then be sure to sign our pet waiver too!
The online liability waiver can be filled out online by clicking on the images below before visiting Riva Row Boat House and Lakes Edge Boat House, or on a tablet at either boathouse. Once completed, the liability waiver remains active for the current year.
About Riva Row Boat House
Riva Row Boat House opened as the first public boat rental location in The Woodlands, TX, in 2009 as part of the rapidly-developing Woodlands Waterway in The Woodlands Town Center. It is centrally located within walking distance from Town Green Park, Market Street, and The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. This boat house sits on the lower waterway, and it takes about 20-25 leisurely minutes to reach Lake Woodlands by watercraft. Eight (8) family-friendly rental options include single and tandem kayaks, single and tandem pedal kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, elliptical stand-up paddle boards, water bikes, and swan boats.
A second boat house, Lakes Edge Boat House, opened in 2016 in the new Hughes Landing development. This compact, kiosk-style boat house is located just south of Restaurant Row between One Lakes Edge and Two Lakes Edge apartment buildings and docks directly on Lake Woodlands for easy access to Northshore Park and the rest that the beautiful lake has to offer. Rental options currently include single kayaks, tandem kayaks, and stand-up paddle boards. Beginning in spring 2021 offerings at LEBH will include water bikes as well!
Riva Row Boat House and Lakes Edge Boat House are owned and operated by The Woodlands Township, a political subdivision of the State of Texas.
