The Scioto Riverside Park Master Plan outlines a transformational vision for one of Dublin’s most important civic and natural spaces, which will connect Historic Dublin and the heart of the Bridge Street District.
The new park will be part of a broader system of regional parks and local recreational systems, linking to these assets through extensive bicycle/pedestrian facilities, canoe/kayak access points, and scenic natural connections. The west side of the park is envisioned as a more naturalized area with connections to the Indian Run greenway, water access and trail systems. The east side of the park is elevated outside of the floodplain and will feature areas for public gatherings and cultural events, pavilion building, outdoor ice skating, rock climbing, planting beds and scenic river overlooks.
The two sides of the park will be linked by a pedestrian-bicycle bridge, with public plazas providing access to restaurants, shops, a new library, and the broader mix of destinations east and west.
Vehicular access, steep riverside slopes, and the consideration of existing structures are key drivers of park design and programming, as well as is the goal of maintaining flexibility for future programming for residents of both the Bridge Street District and the entire City of Dublin.
The Scioto Riverside Park Master Plan is a long term vision for the park, being developed in phases based on available public and private funding. The vision for the park has been instrumental in catalyzing the multi-million-dollar private investments in new developments planned for both sides of the Scioto River, adding to the vibrancy and vitality of Dublin’s civic center and benefitting all residents and businesses of Dublin.
