R.D. Brown Construction will begin preliminary preparations next week for construction of the Amphitheater at Riverside Village. Security fencing around the project next week will be the first order of business. Mobilization and actual construction will begin the week of Sept. 23. The section of the Greeneway on the riverfront at the construction site will be closed for the 8-month duration of the construction project. This section is right below SRP Park and the Southbound Smokehouse. Greeneway users of this section need to plan an alternate route during this time. This portion of the Greeneway will be relocated approximately 10 feet closer to the riverfront.

Top Gun Sports will be bringing travel baseball and softball teams to Riverview Park this coming weekend. The action will include youngsters ages 8-14 and occupy the ballfields on Saturday and Sunday.
