Oglesby’s new boat launch opens before its entirely finished

Posted by wlpo on March 21, 2016

Ready or not, Oglesby’s boat and canoe launch opened to the public today.

According to the NewsTribune, Mayor Don Finley says even though the city is still waiting for grant money to finish the launch, it’s opening to accommodate any of you eager to get on the river. He says its kayak season and people are anxious.

The state awarded Oglesby a $152,000 grant back in 2014 to build a launch along the Vermilion River and north of Lehigh Park with the plans to also include a parking lot.
