Mt. Vernon to open downtown park; break ground on The Landing | Events
There will be a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the recently completed riverfront park in Mt. Vernon on Thursday. The ribbon cutting will include a dedication of the riverfront plaza which showcases a trail, the riverfront performance theater, interactive fountains, and an overlook with a view of the Ohio River.
Immediately following the Riverfront park ribbon cutting and dedication, the City and its partners will break ground on The Landing, an $8 million residential/commercial project which is being constructed across the street from the new park.
The completion of the park and the construction of The Landing marks a new era in the revitalization of the city’s downtown.
The Ribbon Cutting and Dedication of the Park will take place at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 20, 2012 at the Riverfront Park located at Main and Water Streets in Mt. Vernon.
