Lake Elizabeth, located on the West Side of the project has a lakeside promenade designed to provide a natural area for waterfowl, fish and other wildlife. Recreational and educational opportunities abound. The original Arkansas River stone wall has been incorporated into the design, creating a historic setting and theme which is carried throughout the project.
 
Along the river channel several signature construction projects add to the ambiance of the area. Begin your tour at Kelly Falls located at the base of the Union Avenue Historic District. As you stroll along the riverfront you will encounter plazas perfect for special family gatherings, private celebrations, festivals and community events.
 
Many of the important features at the Riverwalk are possible through the generous contributions of area families and grants from major foundations. The Coors Pavilion and El Pomar Plaza are two of the most significant construction projects. The Williams family provided five beautiful bronze geese in flight and a huge stone sculpture comes to life at the fountain donated by the Farley and Reilly families.
 
In the natural area on the -- side of the project, garden and landscape materials were donated by the Anderson family. Houston Construction of Pueblo provided substantial in-kind services to this area to make it a perfect place for school field trips, complete with an outdoor classroom.
