  South End is Now Open

River’s Edge Trail bridge connection

The River’s Edge Trail connection across the historic 10th Street Bridge is now open. City Park and Recreation staff opened the bridge connection on Aug. 10 and are planning a ceremony during the Lumunaria Walk on Aug. 29. The trail connection is the result of a land swap between the city and Independence Bank that was approved by the city in 2021.

The new trail continues downstream along the river embankment from under the 9th Street Bridge to the south abutment of the 10th Street Bridge. From there, trail users could continue downstream using existing trail along River Drive North or cross the Historic Tenth Street Bridge to connect with north shore trails, according to the River’s Edge Trail foundation.
