Project Details

Abonmarche secured a Land Water Conservation Fund grant to cover a portion of the costs related to the expansion of the City’s Black River Park property. The property was contaminated from its former use as a public works facility, meaning that once the grant was awarded, Abonmarche had to coordinate environmental clean-up work before the site could be converted to park use. Once completed, Abonmarche was charged with overseeing the design and construction of improvements on a 1.5- acre expansion of Black River Park that will increased the park’s size and amenities to include a fishing access point, and will further increase accessibility to the river. As part of the project, the riverbank will be stabilized with a stonework installation and an incorporated fishing platform. New walkways were created within the park area to connect the park to the Kal-Haven trail as well as the development of a pedestrian bridge over Celery Creek to connect the old section of the park to the new.
