A New Dock for Dryden

June 15, 2022

A brand-new dock will provide better service to residents and tourists sailing along the Wabigoon River in Dryden.

The City recently installed a newer and sturdier dock along Victoria Street at its public boat launch area.

Prior to replacement, the old dock had deteriorated significantly, had plywood used as decking, and needed more repair work than its overall value. The municipality determined the dock was at the end of its life, with legacy parts no longer available.

The new structure is a heavy-duty dock with composite decking, is larger than the old dock, and is expandable.

Thanks to investments from the Canada Community-Building Fund, Dryden now has a dock that can better withstand weather events, and handle increased visitor traffic for years to come.
