River Park Square opens new public patio

River Park Square opens new public patio

There’s a new place to sip an iced coffee with friends on warm summer day thanks to River Park Square. The shopping mall opened a public patio on Thursday in an effort to meet the need for more gathering spots downtown.


“We really hope that it will activate downtown,” said River Park Square General Manager Bryn West. She came up with the idea for the patio after hearing a speaker at an event talking about how to utilize spaces already available. West thought it would be a great idea to turn the large front entrance of River Park Square in a public patio.
