Buffalo River Fest Park
Opened in June 2011, Buffalo River Fest Park was the beginning of the redevelopment along the shore of the Buffalo River. Once a bustling area for the shopping of goods and grain, the river fell victim to a period of decline as industries disappeared from the waterfront.
Buffalo River Fest Park initiated new opportunities, accommodating both the lake freighters to serve the remaining elevators, and introducing the river as a recreational venue for rowing, kayaking, canoeing and paddle boating. Rather than the vast industrial wasteland with overgrown weeds and debris, Buffalo River Fest Park claimed three acres and has now become a beautifully landscaped park.
