Plans for improving Riverbank Park are being finalized in tandem with in-river restoration plans. Riverbank Park will be transformed by enhanced physical and visual access to the river. Restoration efforts will address longstanding obstacles presented by the existing park infrastructure to safety, accessibility, and maintenance. Design recommendations include creating new access points to the Flint River, constructing ADA accessible pathways, installing a new lighting network, restoring the fountains at both Grand Fountain Block and Waterwall Block, and restoring the public restroom. Specific plans for each of the six blocks that make-up Riverbank Park are being finalized now. Construction is expected to begin with the in-river restoration work in 2023 and to be completed by the end of 2026.
