Riverwalk Clean Up
The portion of the Riverwalk Trail that connects the downtown Riverfront Park and Remington Nature Center has reopened following last year's flooding of the Missouri River. This area of the trail provides an accessible leisure or multi-level exercise opportunity for residents and outdoor enthusiasts.
The entire 15-acre area was breached by floodwaters which left behind an estimated 132,000 cubic yards of silt and sand material that has not yet been completely repaired. Working under a permit issued by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, staff has carefully and methodically excavated and reshaped the area in efforts to restore it to pre-flood conditions.
Even though restoration work continues, visitors have access to 1.5 miles of the walking trail. The parking lots at the
downtown Riverfront Park and Remington Nature Center
are open and available for public use to access the trail. The portion of the trail leading from the casino north to Heritage Park remains closed due to damaged portions of the levee the walking trail sits on.
