Confluence River Park Designs – We Want to Hear From You!

Thursday, May 2nd, 2019

The idea of a riverside park at the confluence of the North Branch and mainstem of the Winooski Rivers in downtown Montpelier has been a dream for many residents and city officials for almost three decades. The Vermont River Conservancy is pleased to partner with the city to move this idea forward and have a place for residents and visitors along the shores of these rivers – to launch a boat, cast a fishing line, or sit on a bench and enjoy all that our rivers have to offer.

The future Confluence River Park marked by red (approximate size!).

VRC is working with a design team from Milone & MacBroom Inc. to offer the City of Montpelier some design options for the Confluence River Park. We welcome and encourage members of the public to weigh in on these designs and will have several opportunities for people to offer their feedback and ask questions. We will update this page frequently with upcoming opportunities for public input. Next up is Saturday, May 4th from 9:30 am – 1:00 pm in front of Montpelier City Hall. We will have a table set up with the conceptual designs and representatives from the design team will be there to answer questions. We hope you will come check it out and fill out a survey – we value your feedback!

Please click this link to see the three conceptual designs:  conceptual drawings

And a new,  4th design can be found here.

Please click here to take our short survey (2-5 minutes), to share your thoughts on which design you like and how you would like to use the park
