Foundations, friends groups in Kane County provide a big boost
The planks of the Batavia Riverwalk are an exercise in people’s devotion to their community.
Built by volunteers in the 1990s, the Riverwalk overlooks the Fox River, Depot Pond and has a gazebo. But its 864 lineal feet of elevated boardwalk over the wetlands are in need of replacement, said Steve McKenna, president of the Batavia Parks Foundation.
“The wood is starting to show its age,” McKenna said. “It’s pushing 20 years. Maintenance aspects are getting steeper for the park district. Some sections are questionable from a safety perspective.”
