The swimming beach at Hodag Park has added a pair of docks as a result of a $5,000 donation from the Rhinelander Community Foundation to the city.
Rhinelander parks director Jeremy Biolo said the docks located on each side of the swimming area will make the beach “look aesthetically a little more pleasing” with the buoys hooked on the edge of the docks and the swimming area extended.
Biolo said adding boulders along the shoreline would help deal with erosion problems.
“The ice has really taken out our sand and we’re putting more and more money into that,” said Biolo, who also noted Musson Brothers donated more than $3,000 worth of sand to place at the beach this summer. “We’re going to try to protect that beach for the future.”
