Project manager takes viewers on video tour of Cincinnati Riverfront Park

Cincinnati Riverfront Park Project Manager Dave Prather takes viewers on a virtual "Hard Hat Tour" construction update in a video added to the project website.

Highlighted in the video are the Walnut Street Event Lawn, Moerlein Lager House, Bike & Mobility Center, and parking garage.

Prather also discusses how park planners have taken into account seasonal floods on the Ohio River.

Phase I of the park also will include water features, a tree grove and gardens, a labyrinth, and a monument to the Black Brigade of Cincinnati. The project is on budget and scheduled to open in spring 2011.

Future video updates are planned as construction progresses.
