The Boathouse in Victoria Park will remain closed until after the pandemic, a spokesperson for the City of Kitchener said Tuesday.

“The City has delayed issuing the request for proposal (RFP) to secure a new tenant due to the pandemic and challenges faced by our restaurant, hospitality, and entertainment communities,” Shawn Falcao told Global News in an email.

“Staff is continuing to monitor the impact of the pandemic on local restaurants and the RFP for a new tenant will be issued post-pandemic.”

The historic building was last home to a live music venue and the restaurant closed its doors without much explanation toward the end of 2019.
