River Front Park Project
           City of Clarksville, MO
A picture is worth a thousand words!!!
(
LET THE CELEBRATION BEGIN.)
The over head electrical lines have
been removed from the river side
of the Park and are now re-located
underground!
In December of 2001 a proposed plan was presented to
Clarksville by Gary Harmon Design Group.  This plan was the
result of meetings and discussions with a number of persons
from Clarksville and the surrounding area and a financial
contribution to fund the preparation of the proposal.  

At the conclusion of the proposal, Mr. Harmon wrote: “This
proposal is an assembly of ideas and experiences from many
places and people, but mostly it was inspired by the people of
Clarksville.  Please use this document as it is intended…as an
idea and enthusiasm generator.”

The River Front Park Advisory Committee has done exactly
that.  They have included each idea present in the proposal and
taken some suggestions several steps further.  In addressing
the River’s Edge the committee decided to build terracing
steps to provide all persons the opportunity to “touch the
water”.  The playground upgrade includes larger space and
ADA compliance.  The plan for and desire to have large boat
mooring never wavered.  Instead, the committee searched for
answers as to how to accommodate large and small boat
mooring, how to address courtesy small boat mooring, new
trees and plantings, new pedestrian park entrance, a walking
path throughout the park, appropriate signs for direction and
interpretation and upgrades in existing buildings and more.
Amazing ideas have been considered
and recommended by the River Front
Park Advisory Committee.
We approved & presented the recommended bid
to the Board of Alderman. 8/18/06
