RiverLink is always looking for new and exciting ways to inform and educate the public. A great way to do that is through informational kiosks stationed in common areas across the river district. These stations can be seen at the Bywater or RiverLink's constructed Labyrinth. They include vital knowledge on the Cotton Mill area history, the French Broad River and surrounding watershed, brownfields, labyrinth history and uses, RiverLink aspirations and current work, with color pictures and more.
RiverLink is pleased to announce that a third kiosk has been constructed and installed in RiverLink's Sculpture and Performance Plaza, located on Riverside Drive, as of November 5. The kiosk includes facts on local history, future use of RiverLink's Sculpture and Performance Plaza, and the Wilma Dykeman RiverWay Plan. A brief overview of RiverLink's past and current work is also part of the kiosk information series. This area is set to become part of Asheville's greenway system as early as July, 2012. Work has already begun on this and surrounding properties to prepare for the transition. The fences will be coming down soon, as the space gets closer to becoming a vital commons for the River Arts District.
Be on the lookout for more kiosks to come as RiverLink continues its mission to further engage the hearts and minds of WNC citizens, and make river fronts top destinations to live, work, and play.
