Parking Lot Construction Update

**9/2018-"D" Construction will be completing parking lot improvements at Riverfront Park. The work will consist of the installing of new storm sewer, excavating, and grading for the parking lot on the east end of Hydraulic Ave and paving the parking lot. The construction of the parking lot is scheduled to begin in the next few weeks. Once construction begins the east end of Hydraulic Ave will be closed to all traffic. The parking lot near Foxy's Ice Cream will remain open during this project. 

The park, located along Hydraulic Avenue and the Fox River, is a favorite of visitors and residents during the summertime months. Riverfront Park is home to the Marge Cline Whitewater Course. Please see the Marge Kline Whitewater Course page for more information about the course. If you are looking for a place to park to visit this park please see the downtown parking map.
