RiverScape MetroPark, just across the river from McPherson Town, has been so successful in bringing people to the river. Now, River Run will get people into the river. Backers of the project to remake the Great Miami River downtown into a water recreation attraction say they’ve raised $3.8 million and will now seek cash contributions from the public to raise the remaining $200,000.
UPDATE! On Oct. 25, 2012 – The Downtown Dayton Partnership announced that the $4 million goal has been met! Construction begins in 2013.
