Bringing life back to city rivers



Re-imagining the Chicago river

Urban Rivers is currently facilitating the design and implementation of a park on the east side of Goose Island consisting of floating gardens, wildlife habitat, urban agriculture and more to be enjoyed by the local community – wildlife and people alike!

What we strive to achieve

  • Improve water quality
  • Stimulate the local economy
  • Beautify the urban landscape
  • Rehabilitate and grow wildlife habitat
  • Teach the local community about their urban waterway(s)
