Ground Broken for French River Park
On October 13, ground was broken for French River Park, a 1.66 acre parcel in downtown Webster intended to anchor the Webster Riverwalk portion of the French River Greenway, with completion is planned for early summer 2011.
Features of the 1.66 acre park include accessible walking paths, picnic tables and benches, site lighting, a canoe/kayak launch, and water and power to support community events. There will be 23 parking spaces, and a bike rack. The shoreline will be stabilized and rain gardens installed for stormwater management. Plantings will consist of indigenous species appropriate to the river corridor. See an image of the plan here.
The Town of Webster and the French River Connection jointly hold a 15 year lease on the property.
