Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale



Welcome to Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale and the Riverwalk Linear Park, a lush tropical oasis in the downtown center of an urban metropolis. Our mission is “to be the catalyst in building and nurturing Riverwalk as a vibrant community connected by the New River“.

We take our mission seriously and strive to oversee the park, plan for the future, assure compliance and help create this amazing destination in our downtown.  We partner with many groups, including the City of Fort Lauderdale, Downtown Development Authority, Broward County and local area associations, businesses and organizations that are integral in the success of our downtown.
