Project Start : 11/11/2013
The riverfront revitalization marches westward with the upcoming completion of the 1801 W. Jefferson parcel.
The 20-acre land parcel will be a safe and accessible location for visitors to walk, bike and fish. Wide expanses of lush green space are visible from the river and from the street, ensuring there is plenty of space for outdoor activities this coming spring. The parcel contains an extra-wide 30-foot RiverWalk for biking, jogging or fishing, three 20-foot pathways leading from West Jefferson to the riverfront, benches, lighting, security call boxes and trash receptacles.
Planning is currently underway for developing diverse and engaging programming offerings at the site for the 2014 season, with a ribbon cutting scheduled for early spring.
