Construction has begun on the second water feature at RiverScape River Run, the whitewater play park in the Great Miami River adjacent to McPherson Town.
Work on the $4 million River Run project began in July 2015. The first water feature constructed is built atop what was the Monument Avenue low dam. It spans the river near the Dayton Art Institute. The project should transform the low dam — a drowning hazard for many years — into a safe passage for recreational paddlers and a whitewater chute for kayakers.
The second feature sits in front of RiverScape MetroPark on the river – both will be easily accessible for neighborhood paddlers, fisherpeople, and observers.
McPherson Town is excited to have this new amenity on our front door step.
