What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Downtown Fort Lauderdale is a rapidly growing area with new residences and hotels being built at a rapid rate. As these new units come online, the population will grow exponentially as will the number of both business and leisure travelers. These individuals will be looking for things to do and experience so it is imperative that Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale maintain and enhance the amenities in the area which includes ten parks and provide a wide range of activities as well. These activities range from exercise classes, dog training, paddle boarding, concerts, festivals and more.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To active the Riverwalk District through a variety of events and partnerships.
Partner with the City, County and private sector to fund the 9/11 monument which includes and artifact from the World Trade Center.
Promote art in public places in new and interesting ways such as pop up art projects and spaces that lend themselves to murals, etc.
Seek additional funding for the free Riverwalk Water Trolley in an effort to expand its schedule.

Partnering with the City, County and the private sector to raise funds and participation at events.

Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale already works closely with the City of Fort Lauderdale due to the fact that the organization is overseeing and programming public land. This partnership also extends Broward County in that we are providing an asset to their tourism and branding efforts.
In addition, as a membership organization, we have engaged the business community in a way that is unique and lends itself to forming productive, long lasting partnerships.

For the past thirty years, RIverwalk Fort Lauderdale has continued to grow and expand its offerings to the community. We have been successful in making Downtown Fort Lauderdale a vibrant and beautiful place to live, work and play. In fact, Riverwalk was recently awarded the Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor.
Fifteen years ago, we began publishing Go Riverwalk magazine which has become the go to publication for information about what is going on in and around the city.
