Spencerville’s Riverside Park is going to have some work done.
After Spencerville’s crowdsourcing efforts for the This Place Matters contest the money is ready to rejuvenate Riverside Park. The plan for the park is an ambitious one but with over $55,000 dollars raised the group working on it says they can now make all their plans realities. Some of the planned additions include; plants, benches, picnic tables, wheel chair accessible pathways, bike racks, recycling bins, historical plaques and a map highlighting village businesses and points of interest. They also plan on building a pergola to protect park visitors from the sun.
According to the Spencerville This Place Matters team Edwardsburgh Cardinal Township, who own the site, will be helping with the initiative by providing $20,000 in infrastructure improvements to the park’s road and parking lot. They believe it is important to keep the park looking nice because it will benefit the Spencerville Mill & Museum, as well as nearby businesses and historic sites.
