Private Event Rental
The Center for Wooden Boats has multiple spaces available for Private Events:
SOUTH LAKE UNION FLOATING BOATHOUSE GALLERY & DECK
Located on the south point of Seattle’s Lake Union, our floating Boathouse Gallery and Deck offer exceptional views year-round. The event space is set among our notable collection of vessels, with a marina to the East, the Space Needle and historic Naval Reserve Building to the West, and the full activity of the lake to the North.
Each rental includes both indoor and open outdoor spaces.
LAKE UNION PARK WAGNER EDUCATION CENTER
Located on shore in Lake Union Park, the newly opened Wagner Education Center features stunning Olson Kundig architecture. Exposed iron, cedar and concrete create a modern, open feel. Floor to ceiling windows reveal Lake Union, the park, and peek into the working Boatshop.
