Monatiquot Riverwalk

(Town Council Order 13-002)

The Monatiquot Riverwalk is a.8 mile recreational path which parallels the river for over half its length and will connect the two ends of Watson Park and Gordon Road with the riverfront. The area is heavily used for recreational walking and activities at Watson Park and the path provides pedestrians, bicyclists and others the opportunity to enjoy Watson Park’s frontage along the Monatiquot River.

Riverwalk Construction

A team from the Community Development Resource Center worked pro bono to explore an idea for the riverwalk for which the Town received a Technical Assistance Grant from the National Park Service. Staff in the Planning and Community Development Office worked with Park Service staff to design the proposed path (including stabilization of eroded riverbank) which was constructed by the Town’s Department of Public Works.
