Supporting Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale
This is an exciting and important time for the growth and development of Riverwalk, and we are continuing our efforts to guide and facilitate the emergence of Riverwalk as a unique downtown community. We strive to be the lead organization in supporting Downtown merchants, restaurants and cultural institutions, establishing the framework for an emerging residential community, and creating Design Guidelines to preserve and protect the unique character along the New River and the Riverwalk District.
We seek support from the community we serve in the form of sponsorships and memberships. Members receive exclusive benefits including: Riverwalk publications, Riverwalk e-mails about upcoming events, discounts on Riverwalk merchandise and activities, invitations to exclusive special events and special recognition as a member. But most importantly, you will be supporting the programs and activities of Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale:
