Construction along the Uniroyal Promenade is nearing the final stages. Currently crews are working on building a retaining wall to hold earth back on the far eastern side of the property. The last section of the concrete walkway will be poured as soon as the retaining wall is finished, followed by the installation of final sections of the marine railing.

Electricians are currently completing the wiring for light poles, and the irrigation system is also being placed in preparation for landscaping. The installation of site furnishings and landscaping will take place this summer and early fall.

The Uniroyal Promenade will not only complete the Conservancy’s vision for the East Riverfront, but it will also provide a link between Mt. Elliott Park and Gabriel Richard Park and provide a pathway to the MacArthur Bridge to Belle Isle.

The Conservancy looks forward to celebrating the grand opening of the Uniroyal Promenade this fall.
