PROJECT OVERVIEW

Prairie Forge Group constructed the riverfront park for the City of Rock Island, Illinois along the banks of the Mississippi River. The park, which has become the focal point of the community, features water play areas, nature paths and access to the river. Construction for the project included the demolition of an existing armory building and the installation of the demountable flood wall system. The project was completed on time and significantly under budget.
