Long Beach Marine Stadium
California State Historic Landmark 1014
#1014 Long Beach Marine Stadium
Created in 1932 for the rowing events of the Xth Olympiad, the Stadium was the
first manmade rowing course in the United States. Its width allowed four teams to race abreast,
eliminating additional heats and allowing oarsmen to enter the finals at the peak of their
form. Later it served as the venue for the 1968 and 1976 United States men's Olympic rowing trials
and the 1984 United States women's Olympic rowing trials. The site remains an important training
and competitive center for rowers, including our national and Olympic teams.
