Milwaukee River Docks and Lifts

The Milwaukee River Walk District has come alive after many decades of industrial business left the water polluted and in decline.  The Milwaukee River Walk is a 3 mile pedestrian walkway and river trail that has been instrumental in the revitalization of downtown Milwaukee.  It has become a popular area for recreation, nightlife, performing arts and dining.  Now on a sunny day you’ll see pontoon boats and kayaks on the river or docked along side Milwaukee River docks and lifts by Metal Craft Docks.

Milwaukee River Docks

During the revitalization of the area now known as Trostel Square, Metal Craft Docks was selected as the preferred dock manufacturer for all of the floating dock systems within the area.  Heavy Duty Floating Docks are designed and built to meet the needs of the ever changing Milwaukee River so that residents and visitors of the area can safely enter and exit their watercraft.  Metal Craft docks are available in four widths, three lengths and three standard colors.  Our docks feature environmentally safe polyethylene encased flotation as a standard component of our dock systems.  Heavy Duty Floating docks are engineered to last a lifetime with minimal maintenance and hassle-free use.  ADA compliant ramps and stair systems are matching in deck color and can be added to any dock system.  Contact John at Anchors A’Weigh for more information on Metal Craft products and your dock needs.
