Riverside Park duck pond going under construction in 2019

Beginning today, the City Parks and Recreation Department will close the Duck Pond in Riverside Park to make repairs and improvements to the popular attraction.

The project will include draining the pond and removing debris, as well as inspecting for damages to the pond structure. The uneven sidewalks and the bridge to the gazebo will be repaired to create a safer and even more attractive area for visitors to enjoy.

The repairs could take several months depending on weather and the amount of the damage below the water level. The Duck Pond will be closed to visitors during the repair period.
