Alert Message - Docks have not been installed due to river conditions. We do not recommend launching your boat from Riverside Park or Great River Park.   Learn More

Dock installation has been prohibited due to the late spring flood start and prolonged high water period since then. The river has to be at elevation 6 or lower for us to remove the accumulated silt and install the docks. We recognize that this is atypical of most years, and thank boaters in advance for their cooperation. We will continue to monitor the river levels to determine when it is possible to install the docks and allow boaters to launch from them safely. Until then, we do not recommend launching, and doing so is at your own risk.

Come just to laugh, to jump on stage or to shout out your ideas and see them spun into comedy gold.
