This is the gate on the south side of the RiverWalk
This fountain bench combo was given to the people of Columbus, Georgia from their sister city, Kiryu, Japan, during the 1992 quincentennial celebration.
Backstory and Context
The second phase of the RiverWalk expanded the walk from the Columbus Convention and Trade Center in Downtown to Oxbow Meadows in South Columbus. Shortly before the city expanded the North end of the walk it was extended to Fort Benning where the Infantry Center is located.
The third phase dealt with the stretch from the TSYS building to the Bibb Mill.
The fourth and final phase extended the RiverWalk from Bibb Mill to the Lake Oliver Dam. Construction began in 2009 to connect the RiverWalk from the 14th Street bridge to the piece at Eagle & Phenix Dam. This section opened in early 2011 and has since been open for all to enjoy.
Along the RiverWalk there are 11 designated access points, some which include Woodruff Park, Eagle and Phenix Mills, etc.
