Keep Cool at Waterfront Park

A message from our Executive Director, Deborah Bilitski:

July is National Park and Recreation Month, a time to recognize and reflect upon the important role parks play in our communities and the quality of life and well-being of our residents. Each year, 2.2 million+ people visit Waterfront Park and use it in so many different ways – to walk along one of the country’s 10 best Riverwalks, to listen to live music at Waterfront Wednesday, to cookout with the family in one of our shaded picnic areas, to let the kids expend some energy at one of our playgrounds, to take a yoga class, to watch a Great Blue Heron catch its dinner at the river’s edge, and the list goes on and on. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the talented staff of Waterfront Park who work day in and day out to activate and maintain Waterfront Park with the goal of enhancing quality of life and well-being in our community. Every one of them recognizes the importance of this space to you, not just in July, but every single month of the year.

Show your appreciation of Waterfront Park and our dedicated team of park professionals by becoming a member of Waterfront Park today. Your contribution helps us share our Waterfront with everyone and preserve our park for generations to come.
