Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale, Inc.

Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization responsible for the planning, programming, beautification, and promotion of Riverwalk Park. We are composed primarily of volunteer private citizens and overseen by a board of directors. All members uphold the organization’s directive, as stated in its mission statement, “to be the catalyst in building and nurturing Riverwalk as a vibrant community connected by the New River.” We pursue our mission through a wide range of fundraising and membership events and advocacy on behalf of the Park and the district through our informative website and GoRiverwalk magazine and social media.

Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale has its origin with the City of Fort Lauderdale. In December 1988, only three years after securing funding for a linear public park along the New River, the City established Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale to facilitate in the design as well as develop fundraising and advocacy efforts. Since its launch, we have played a significant role in obtaining a “regional park” designation from Broward County; guiding redevelopment and Park expansion efforts, and contributing to the three most recent City plans for enhancing the downtown core. Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale works closely with the City, the County,  the Downtown Development Authority of Fort Lauderdale, and other important partners in the public and private sectors in overseeing the development, activation, and growth for our linear park and downtown Riverwalk District.   It is through these partnerships that we work to produce events and activities benefiting the Park and the city. These events and activities have made Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale an invested participant in the growth of Fort Lauderdale and the Riverwalk District in Downtown.
