A flood-prone area of downtown Plymouth is now a park for all to enjoy. U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly was among the dignitaries on hand for Saturday’s dedication of the city’s River Park Center. He praised the community’s ability to see a problem and continue to improve it and make it better, as they did by turning the former G&G Grocery and Harvey Mart location into a family-friendly recreational space.
The River Park Center is located at the intersection of Garro and Water Streets and features walking paths, a community garden, picnic shelter, playground, gazebo and plenty of green space. Mayor Mark Senter says this is just the beginning. He wants to add a veterans plaza to memorialize those who have died in the name of freedom and recognize all who have served. The farmers market will also be located at the new River Park Center in season.
