We still have to contend with the "wall" between the park and town. It might help if Council would consider putting Riverfront Park directional signs out on Main Street, and maybe line the last block of Haws with some new trees (the way Fornance was lined with Sycamores, to lead people to Elmwood Park when it first opened in 1900). Make Haws Avenue an inviting entryway.
Stop by Saturday and see Riverfront Park's facelift for yourself. RIVERFEST starts at 11 am and will go to at least 4 pm. Music all day. Food vendors. At 1 pm, they'll have a Breast Cancer Survivor Flower Ceremony. If you want, you can try a kayak, outrigger canoe, canoe or paddle board, or ride in a dragon boat. Or just enjoy the view and celebrate the revitalization of the park. The weather's supposed to be sunny and beautiful. See you there.
