RiverWalk Phase 2: Longer is better

When it comes to RiverWalk, more is definitely more.

Phase I of the popular walk/bike/blading promenade, which stretches from 3rd Street SE to the Simmons Building, opened to rave reviews in late 2010; Phase II, from 3rd Street SE to Centre Street Bridge, is scheduled to be bike tire, running shoe and blade wheel rubber-ready in the summer of 2011. New in this section are dedicated bike and pedestrian lanes, adding to the river access, outlook deck, varied surfaces and native vegetation that have already made Phase I an East Village icon. RiverWalk opened quietly last year; this summer, we’ll celebrate with a bang. We’ll keep you posted about grand opening dates and plans. Sign up for ev-news for more details.
