Project Status: Construction
Project Update: Final striping of the basketball court and landscaping to be completed in Spring of 2019.
Project Overview: Riverside Park improvements, including demolition of the community center, were selected and designed based on the 2016 council-approved Mini-Master Plan and subsequent consultation with the Riverside Community Club. Demolition of the community center is also called for by the current Council-approved Parks and Recreation Master Plan which recommends elimination of underutilized and deteriorated community centers, in part to allow increased use and improved maintenance of remaining community centers. The project includes replacement of the existing playground, tree planting, half-court basketball court, porta-potty slab with screen and new grills, benches and picnic tables.
Project Background: Riverside is one of thirteen parks along the St. Louis River Corridor that was identified as part of the larger St. Louis River Corridor Initiative. These parks are eligible for designated 1/2 and 1/2 tax funds. The Neighborhood Park Grant Fund is designated to help the City of Duluth accomplish the following six goals in the qualifying parks:
1) Build on and support environmental restoration
2) Enrich neighborhood quality of life
3) Attract new residents to buy homes in St. Louis River Corridor neighborhoods
4) Establish St. Louis River Corridor as major visitor destination
5) Stimulate place-appropriate economic development
6) Leverage additional funding
Funding Source: The City of Duluth will partner with user groups and residents to co-create and co-manage outdoor recreation experiences in the neighborhood parks along the corridor. The 9:1 match requires that a $10,000 of the project's funding be generated through community efforts, which can include cash donations, other grant funds, in-kind volunteer hours, and in kind donations of materials and professional services.
The $10,000 Riverside Park match was met from community partners through community contributions of cash, materials and volunteer labor. This project was supported by contributions from Local Initiatives Support Corporation, Riverside Community Club and Spirit Valley Land Company.
