Darien Riverfront Park

Beginning with its comprehensive plan in the early 1990s, the City of Darien and McIntosh County have made plans for sensitive development along the river front in Darien. The Darien Multi-Use master plan was developed in 2009 and promoted the idea of providing environmentally sound access for local residents and visitors to the Darien and Cathead Rivers, while also supporting the eco-tourism industry, and creating an opportunity to provide education on the coastal marsh ecosystem and local history. Since 2009, the City has implemented several of the projects including restoration of the City Dock near Waterfront Park, development of the Butler Docks and Kayak Launch on Butler Island, and construction of a wildlife viewing tower and trail. These projects were all made possible through CDBG Redevelopment Fund dollars used to assist Darien in preserving this historic riverfront, with further Coastal Incentive Grant Awards.
