The Lafarge property in North Delta, purchased by the City of Delta for a future park, has been officially named River Bend Park. The city received 14 suggestions, and staff selected three finalists for council's consideration — River Bend Park, Riverwood Park and Driftwood Park.
Council members preferred River Bend because the park lies along a bend in the Gunnison River.
The 56.5-acre parcel is currently closed to the public for reclamation, but is expected to be open for fishing, walking and boating by spring 2013.blog comments powered by Disqus
