The city of Rhinelander is getting funds to pay for a new boat landing.
More than $400,000 are coming in from DNR and federal grants. City Parks and Grounds Director Gunder Paulson says the launch will be at the site of an old DNR ranger station.
“We’re calling this the Boyce Drive boat landing. It’s right by Shephard Park. And it’s at the confluence of the Pelican and Wisconsin Rivers. Very beautiful spot.”
The project will consist of piers and a paved boat launch area. It will also include bathrooms and a parking lot.
