Riverside Park


Project Status: Construction

Project Update: Final striping of the basketball court and landscaping to be completed in spring of 2019.

Project Overview: Riverside is one of thirteen parks along the St. Louis River Corridor that was identified as part of the larger St. Louis River Corridor Initiative. These parks are eligible for designated 1/2 and 1/2 tax funds. The Neighborhood Park Grant Fund is designated to help the City of Duluth accomplish the following six goals in the qualifying parks:

Riverside Park improvements, including demolition of the community center, were selected and designed based on the 2016 council-approved Mini-Master Plan and subsequent consultation with the Riverside Community Club. Demolition of the community center is also called for by the current Council-approved Parks and Recreation Master Plan which recommends elimination of underutilized and deteriorated community centers, in part to allow increased use and improved maintenance of remaining community centers. The project includes replacement of the existing playground, tree planting, half-court basketball court, porta-potty slab with screen and new grills, benches and picnic tables.

Project Update: Final striping of the basketball court and landscaping to be completed in spring of 2019.
