Confluence River Park Designs

July 9, 2019

The idea of a riverside park at the confluence of the North Branch and mainstem of the Winooski Rivers in downtown Montpelier has been a dream for many residents and city officials for almost three decades. The Vermont River Conservancy is pleased to partner with the city to move this idea forward and have a place for residents and visitors along the shores of these rivers – to launch a boat, cast a fishing line, or sit on a bench and enjoy all that our rivers have to offer.

The future Confluence River Park marked by red (approximate size!). Consider this a “before” picture, and below Concept “A” could be an “after” picture

VRC is working with a design team from Milone & MacBroom Inc. to offer the City of Montpelier some design options for the Confluence River Park. We welcome and encourage members of the public to weigh in on these designs by filling out a survey – we value your feedback!
Please click this link to see the three conceptual designs:  conceptual drawings
And a new,  4th design can be found here.
Please click here to take our short survey (2-5 minutes), to share your thoughts on which design you like and how you would like to use the park
