Riverfront Park Block Party

When: Fri., July 8, 3-8 p.m. 2016

Construction is about to begin at Riverfront Park to update the beloved space in the city’s center, and the Parks Department wants to celebrate. Construction is expected to extend through 2019 and will add new features to the park, as well as upgrades to existing areas, including work on a recreation rink that’s expected to begin this year. This free party in the park’s Gondola Meadow features plenty of kids’ activities, life-size board games, food trucks, a 30-ton sandbox and a beer and wine garden for those 21 and up. Make it down to this party, so you can say you were there when Riverfront Park’s changes began.

Fri, July 8, from 3-8 pm • Free entry • Riverfront Park, 507 N. Howard • riverfrontparknow.com
