Construction starts for Rockford’s Davis Park project

Construction started this week on Phase I of the Davis Park project. The project is reimagining Rockford's downtown.

We are partnering with SmithGroup on the project, which includes a multiuse trail, restrooms, a sunning beach, rain garden filter, skate park, splash pad, play areas, wetlands and more.

Fehr Graham helped secure a $500,000 funding grant from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity Tourism Attractions and Festivals program to construct the Great Lawn Open Canopy Stage.

Fehr Graham also helped secure funding previously for boat docks, which are being installed now and will be completed this summer. The full project will be finished by fall 2024.
