City of Wilmington Riverwalk complete (Photo: Kirsten Gutierrez/WWAY)

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — For more than 30 years the City of Wilmington has been working on the construction for a walkway in Downtown Wilmington. The 1.75-mile Riverwalk is now complete.

The Riverwalk stretches from the foot of Nun Street on the south end all the way to the Isabel Holmes Bridge on the north end.

Since 1980 the city has invested more than $30,000,000 in improvements, repairs, and additions to the Riverwalk.

In light of this news, the city has named November 18 as Riverwalk Day.

The city will celebrate the completed project with a ribbon-cutting Saturday morning at Riverfront Park. For more information on the upcoming event, click here.

    Only 30 years to complete a 1.75 mile “Riverwalk” at a mere cost of only 30 million dollars? Even the NCDOT could’ve met that schedule and budget!

      were they racing to complete the riverwalk as quickly as possible?

    A Shout Out to all that had a hand in building this, especially those I worked with there back in 81-84. Many City of Wilmington employees spent day upon day working downtown in hot humid days through bone chilling cooler days constructing the first phases. Job Well Done & Congrats to the City Planning Boards for this effort.
