New Downtown Greenway Scenic Plaza Breaks Ground
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Organizers broke ground this morning on a new scenic addition to the Greenway in Downtown Sioux Falls.
The Rotary Centennial Plaza near the 10th Street bridge and River Road will include green space and an overlook area. Several pillars within the plaza are to be developed in future phases. More than $50,000 have been contributed so far to help cover the $150,000 project.
Rotary officials say it’s a great way to add to development along the Big Sioux River.
“Through this project, Downtown Rotary is actually putting in a foothold on the West side of the river and creating the opportunity, really seeding, what will become a progression of developments of enhancements of park area right here on the West side of the river,” said Joel Dykstra, the former Rotary President.
The project is expected to be completed within several months.
