Monticello Riverwalk Survey

  Monticello Riverwalk Survey (takes approx. 1-2 minutes)

Through a partnership with the City of Monticello, Monticello Redevelopment Commission, Monticello Parks & Recreation and other area partners, the Riverwalk Access Trail is in the planning phases. The Monticello Parks & Recreation Board is applying for a Land and Water Conservation Fund to assist in implementation of this much anticipated community project.

Imagine being able to walk from downtown Monticello and be at the edge of the Tippecanoe River in a short walk. Or venturing out in your canoe, kayak or small motorized watercraft to dock and be minutes away from Riverwalk Plaza and other beautiful elements of downtown.

The Riverwalk Access trail will connect the built environment to the navigable waters of the Tippecanoe River. Hop on the trail at the entry point just off of US 24 and enjoy a leisurely stroll down the gently winding trail to the anticipated public access docks right on the Tippecanoe River.

We are seeking your input as the users of this great asset and amenity to the Monticello community.
