The Kerrville Parks and Recreation Department has announced that Hill Country River Rat, Inc. will soon begin operating a pedal boat cruise at Knapp Park as an opportunity supported by Kerrville 2050, the city’s comprehensive master plan. As part of a specific action item, this will expand paddle boat operations and provide them at other river parks.
According to the City, the boat engages participants and is pedaled by 12 stations connected to two paddle wheels, and the boat will be operated by a captain and a first mate. Operations will be by reservation only and are expected to run seasonally during the daytime, encompassing Nimitz Lake as a docking station.
Knapp Park will remain open to the public for general use like fishing and kayaking, and the public is asked to refrain from climbing onto the boat while it is docked and not in use. For additional information regarding Hill Country River Rat, call (830) 343-4289
