The Village of Grand Rapids completed a Public Boat Dock Project located in the Gilead Side-Cut Canal in the summer of 2000. 

The project provided 10 short-term courtesy docks for boaters to dock their boats and enjoy the attractions that the Village of Grand Rapids has to offer. 

The docks are adjacent to the West Street Boat Launch and are ADA accessible. 

The project was funded with Village Capital Improvement Funds and a grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Watercraft Waterways Safety Fund.
