Nunes said the swan boats would be located in the upper area of The Woodlands Waterway at the Riva Row Boat House.
"The swan boats are roughly $4,700 a piece, they seat 4 people and they have iconic swan wings," Nunes said. "In terms of operations, we would operate it as a spin-off of Riva Row Boat House and the swans will be located on the south side of Town Green Park during the majority of the time."
Nunes said the plans being presented to the Township's board of directors will cost $57,000 dollars. Because a vendor for the swan boats is still being sought out, township officials did not announce when the boats would be open to the public.
"In terms of revenue offset, we have looked at swan boats off and on over the course of the years—even back to 2009 when we opened the Riva Row Boat House," he said. "We are recommending a fee structure of $25 for the first hour and $5 for second and third hours."
Township Chairman Gordy Bunch said the new amenity will be an easy asset to deploy.
"When we met with the [The Woodlands Development Company], who still owns the Waterway—and went over the optionality of activities in 2018—the swan pedal boat was the specified asset that was agreeable," Bunch said. "The [development company] feels like it'll be an amenity for the [The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center] and The Westin The Woodlands. And to have paddle boats on the upper canal and closing it off at the Anadarko bridge keeps it in a contained area. I think its going to be exciting for families to have something new to do."
