Construction continues on Chicago's Riverwalk!

Phase 1 of the Chicago Riverwalk construction was completed in 2009, providing a continuous river trail extending from State Street to the lakefront. Phase 2, extending from State Street to LaSalle Street began construction in January of 2014 and is scheduled to open in Spring of 2015. Phase 3, currently still in the design stages, extends from LaSalle Street to Lake Street.  Plans for Phases 2 and 3 include distinctive themes for each of the six blocks from State Street west to Lake Street: The Marina (from State to Dearborn); The Cove (Dearborn to Clark); The River Theater (Clark to LaSalle); The Swimming Hole (LaSalle to Wells); The Jetty (Wells to Franklin) and The Boardwalk (Franklin to Lake).
