Ribbon Cutting! Video

Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale continues to seek out ways to engage the community with their riverwalk and on January 5, 2015, we presented our latest efforts to accomplish just that! Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale announces the opening of Riverwalk Gourmet Delights and Riverwalk Recreation. These new additions to the Riverwalk will serve as new enhancements to the Riverwalk among other ongoing and pending initiatives.

Riverwalk Gourmet Delights includes three food kiosks which will be situated along the Riverwalk near the Huizenga Plaza/Bubier Park. The kiosks – Wholly Crepe, Expresso, and Nacho Bizness – will serve a variety of flavors and styles. Chefs will serve up quality dishes and the Riverwalk will provide the view for the perfect breakfast, lunch or dinner out. An opportunity to enjoy the quintessential beauty of the Riverwalk, while tasting exciting new flavors. Menu items will include sweet and savory crepes, grilled cheese varieties, Asian–Mexican fusion, and more.

Riverwalk Recreation offers a broad range of activities to encourage locals and visitors to spend some time along Riverwalk, while getting healthy. Located in the Riverfront Plaza at 300 SW 1st Ave #111, this space is dedicated to providing a one stop shop for activities on the river. Such activities include guided bicycle, quadracycle, and Segway tours, paddleboard and kayak rental, yoga classes, workout meet-ups, photography classes and dog training classes. The ribbon cutting ceremony for Riverwalk Recreation will be at 4:30 pm at Riverfront Plaza Suite 111.
