Sanford RiverWalk Phase I & II
The Sanford RiverWalk is one of the most ambitious and complicated construction projects the City of Sanford has undertaken and is considered one of the state’s most scenic bike and pedestrian paths. Part of a comprehensive downtown revitalization plan, the new RiverWalk will eventually extend two miles and connect with the Volusia County trail system. Construction consisted of a new seawall, new and relocated utilities, new roadway, traffic signalization, 10-foot-wide bike and pedestrian walkway, hardscape, plaza development, and landscaping. The project also included a Memorial Park designed as a passive recreation space with a cenotaph. The park encompasses a colonnade of palm trees and linear paths surrounding a central lawn and is used for quiet contemplation or as a green space to host small informal or formal gatherings.
