The City of Huntington and the Corps of Engineers are finalizing the plans to completely renovate Harris Riverfront Park. The plans will widen entrances, add new features like a pedestrian bridge, permanent stage on the river, a skate park, spray ground and large events area as well as connect the park to the Paul Ambrose Trail for Health. The plans call for architectural elements that bring river and rail themes together. I can't wait to see the finished product in a few years. The full article is a print exclusive but here is a picture of the proposed 10th Street Entrance:

Lets hope that these plans become reality because it could really help Huntington and promoting further development in the city. Hopefully City Hall won't decide a month before the project is about to begin to rethink the entire plan and decide to redesign the entire project because someone in city hall got their feelings hurt or something like that.

You're right, this will be great for Huntington. You never know what will happen but I'd say this has a pretty good chance of going ahead as is because the Corps of Engineers seems to be in the lead on this since they own the land and have to approve everything.

Nah, I guess whoever the Corps used for the plans prefers old school to the new computer generated stuff.

Is it a David Barnhouse print? He did absolutely awesome prints of many towns in a late 50s setting. I have his Wheeling print... very nice. He likely did one of Huntington too.

Money has been allocated for the spray ground and expanded green space with exercise stations as part of the Paul Ambrose Trail for Health. Construction on this is set to begin this summer. The hope is that this will kick start other upgrades.
