The beauty of the bridge with the concrete spindles and street lights is accented by the beauty of wild life along the Elkhart River. Canoeing is popular on the river from Rome City to Goshen. A River Walk is being built along the river which gives land lubbers a closer glimpse of the beauty and quietness of the river.
The River Walk is partially complete. The River Walk currently goes from Bridge Street to N. Martin Street and will continue to Cavin Street. There are plans for a foot bridge to cross the river, Cavin St. and Pigeon St. following the river.
A Farmers Market is under construction at the new Pettit Park at the corner of Cavin St. and Lincolnway West.
