Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale

Riverwalk Park is a waterfront park in the center of Downtown Fort Lauderdale, FL that stretches along both the north and south banks of the New River. Native Americans traded their ocean catches with inland traders along these ancient banks, while early settlers took their crop along these banks to be transported by rail to northern markets. Fort Lauderdale was established in this busy neighborhood. Florida’s most picturesque mile now features meandering walks through tropical landscaping that lead to various tourist hotspots, eateries, and shopping. Riverwalk Park is a multimillion-dollar endeavor that brings together the arts, history, entertainment, higher education, and other companies with state and local funding.

In 1986, a General Obligation Bond allowed the creation of Riverwalk Park, which had previously only existed in the minds of its residents. Fort Lauderdale voters in the past have approved large-scale projects like Riverwalk Linear Park ($7.4 million) and the Discovery Center (now the Museum of Discovery and Science, costing $8 million). Over $1.5 billion in public and private investment and redevelopment have occurred along the New River as a result of the first seed funding for Riverwalk. More than ten thousand new Downtown residents are making Riverwalk their home, and the area now serves as host to a wide variety of cultural and leisure options.

Our urban environment along the historic New River now has a crown gem in the form of Riverwalk Park, which unites the city’s many other cultural, educational, entertainment, and economic resources. Expect Riverwalk to play an increasingly vital role as a tranquil refuge amid the bustle of City life and a vibrant gathering place for our developing community as Downtown Fort Lauderdale develops into a pedestrian-friendly world-class city.

The Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale is a great place to take a stroll and get a feel for the city. Many people think that the recently finished mile-long linear promenade along the New River in downtown Florida is the most beautiful mile in the entire state.

Riverwalk shows the multiple sides of Fort Lauderdale, both past and present, from the historic district, which includes the 1901 trading station now known as the Stranahan House, to the contemporary Arts & Science District, which includes the Museum of Discovery & Science. Esplanade Park, at the base of the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, is a part of Riverwalk, and it features hands-on nautical and meteorological exhibits. There are charming gazebos, a picnic spot, native plant exhibits, and a butterfly garden along the Riverwalk.
