Built on the site of a former steel mill, the publicly driven design of South Shore Riverfront Park is resourceful in its ability to utilize limited space to accommodate a variety of elements, to integrate sustainability principles and to celebrate the city’s industrial heritage. The design of the 100’ wide park creatively overcomes environmental and infrastructure challenges while providing connections to the surrounding neighborhood, a regional trail and a river despite 40’ of elevation change.
