The Village of Plainfield has developed construction plans for the northwest quadrant of the Riverfront project, which is referred to as the Northwest Riverwalk Park. This area is north of Lockport Street and west of the DuPage River.
The plans include a decorative arbor with stone seatwalls that form an outdoor gathering space, along with the extension of the DuPage River Trail, additional paths and boardwalk, woodland and wetland prairie areas, river access, and viewing terraces.
This section of the Riverfront has been fully engineered and is ready for permitting and construction. However, due to the estiamted cost, the Village of Plainfield and the Riverfront Steering Committee has focused on the area south of Lockport Street for the initial phase of construction while also pursuing grants and outside funding sources for the Northwest Riverwalk Park.
