The Cleveland Dragon Boat Association (CDBA) owns and operates three dragon boats on the Cuyahoga River. We are located at Rivergate Park, 1785 Merwin Ave, Cleveland, OH 44113.

Rivergate Park is another gem in the Cleveland Metroparks Emerald Necklace that provides the only public access to the river's federal commercial navigation channel. All active members of CDBA volunteer their effort to benefit families and individuals of all ages, as well as the business, civic and not-for-profit organizations in Northeast Ohio. Throughout the paddling season, CDBA and Cleveland Metroparks provide a variety of teambuilding and recreational program activities to the Greater Cleveland community.
