Catalyzing Riverfronts for City Activation

Digital Discourse


Guadalupe River Park

Historically, cities around the world have emerged alongside rivers for their access to water, trade, and travel. Now, cities are reimagining what their riverfronts could look like - sites for nature, recreation, housing, innovative public design, and an opportunity to re-energize public spaces and bring communities together. Come learn about how cities across the country are embarking on the reimagining of their riverfronts, and how they’re leveraging these generational investments in civic infrastructure to uplift communities and create innovative approaches to public space governance and management.
