Downtown Riverfront Park Construction Begins
Three and a half years after it was originally envisioned, massive changes to the Scioto River through Downtown Columbus are officially underway. Demolition began in earnest at Battelle Riverfront Park where fountains and concrete are being removed, trees have been chopped and uprooted, and the Santa Maria is being prepped for relocation.
The entire construction process is expected to take two years, which includes the removal of the Main Street Dam, the narrowing and terraforming of the Scioto River, and the construction of 33 new acres of Downtown park space with bike paths, trees and natural vegetation.
