Our pilot project

Reimagining the Chicago river

Urban Rivers is facilitating the design and implementation of a park on the east side of goose island consisting of floating gardens, wildlife habitat, and more to be enjoyed by the local community--wildlife and people alike! 

What we strive to achieve

  • Build a park that beautifies Chicago's landscape

  • Rehabilitate wildlife habitat

  • Teach communities about urban rivers

  • Help clean the Chicago River of trash and pollutants

  • Develop the park from North Avenue to Division Street, one floating garden at a time
