River Corridor Plan

In 2014, Moorhead adopted the River Corridor Plan; envisioning a continuous trail along the Red River, this path will ultimately run through Moorhead, connecting M.B. Johnson Park in the north to the Bluestem Center for the Arts in the south. The plan involves adding several new amenities along the way, including natural resource rehabilitation, interpretation, and playful trailhead park amenities. To obtain these goals, the City has applied and been awarded numerous grants to help fund installation of the trail. Continued grant application is still in process to fully complete this plan. For more information and spotlight projects, visit the River Corridor section of the City website.
