Construction on Mt. Elliott Park’s much anticipated transformation is nearing completion.  Right now, mechanical and electrical systems are undergoing inspection in preparation for the winter months. The final inspection of the water feature will occur in early spring, prior to the park’s grand opening ribbon cutting celebration.

In addition to the water feature and the plaza and pavilion, which is the third along the riverfront, the universally accessible Mt. Elliott Park with breath-taking views of Belle Isle, will feature a vending area, restrooms, a security office, fishing outlooks, colored concrete sidewalks stamped with fun animal footprints, benches, planters and beautiful landscaping, making it what is sure to be a fun and engaging destination for families.
