The Riverwalk Project



Rails to Trails – Through Riverton to Shoshoni

Riverton, though named after a River, has no community access to the River that runs through our city.  In 2007 IDEA Inc., the Depot Foundation and the City of Riverton came together to remedy that problem.  The Depot Foundation purchased 180 acres of riverfront property that had previously been a gravel pit.  The purchase was made with the intent to develop a large community park and a riverwalk system of trails.  Since the purchase the project is well on its way towards completion.  Multiple community organizations and individuals have come forward to take on and complete portions of the riverwalk park project.  The local Rotary club is building a fire pit with seating for over 100 people for outdoor and community events.  The local modelers club has developed an area for sailing boats.  There have been several Eagle Scout projects completed developing different parts of the park. The city of Riverton has provided labor, materials and equipment to secure the park and start developing the system of trails.  Many many more projects and activities are being worked on, planned and anticipated.  This park will be one of the premier riverwalk parks in the state once it is completed.
