Future Plans to Complete Renewal Project

Upper Harbor Renewal at Bay Point

The proposed project would realign Levee Road, add more parking in the Bay Point Park area, and provide more walkways and pathways for pedestrian connections and access. Plans would also include a new park event lawn space and natural lawn amphitheater.

Background

The City Council-adopted 2005 Riverfront Plan, 2009 Upper Harbor Plan, and 2015 Old West Main-Pottery District Action Plan all provided guidance for renewal of this entire area. The proposed, planned, and ongoing projects that interconnect the neighborhood and riverfront are actions in the 2040 Red Wing Community Plan.  Please refer to Chapter 7, Parks and Recreation, for details.
