Downtown Riverfront Park

Peoria, IL
Downtown Riverfront Park

Reclaim most of the downtown riverfront for a large linear park along the Illinois River. My suggestion is to acquire commercial property currently on the east-side of SW Water Street and turn it into a park for passive (open green space) & active (sport fields & courts) recreation, as well as areas for conservation (especially along the river's edge). This would provide several benefits such as flood control, recreation, public gathering space, areas for public art such as the Sculpture Garden. This would be a long term plan but would have significant impacts on downtown housing and economic development.

Anyone remember The Landing? (Circa 1990). Fountains, tiki torches, grass much fun.
