Working Waterfront: A project that has been talked about in Bath [Maine] for at least a decade is getting closer to becoming a reality.

Early this spring, the Bath City Council gave the green light to city planners to finalize the design of and start the permitting process for a public park and pathway system along the Kennebec River to be completed in the next 2 to 3 years.

“As people now turn towards the river more and more often, we want to provide them with opportunities to access the water and this is a way to do that,” said Andrew Deci, Bath’s planner.

The proposed river walk of just under half a mile runs from the visitor information center by the railroad tracks south of downtown, connects to Waterfront Park and extends beyond the park behind BathPort and the Kennebec Tavern to end at the Bath RiverWalk Residences, a condominium project currently under construction, north of downtown.
