Rochester Township Riverfront Plan

Rochester Township Riverfront Plan 

In 2002, the Beaver County Corporation for Economic Development (CED) granted Rochester Township funding for the preparation of a Master Site Development Plan for the Rochester Township Riverfront Site along the Beaver River. The study included analysis of the natural features like topography, soils, and vegetation; evaluated the condition of existing recreation facilities; and worked with interested citizens in setting recreation policies for future park development. The recommendations for the Riverfront Site improvements reflect the recreation needs of the Township's residents. Public input into the needs assessment and the site planning process ensured, that the plans reflect the immediate and future recreation needs of the Township. After considering the opportunities and constraints of the site, this study recommends that the following facilities be developed:

  • Riverfront Walk or Trail with Seating
  • Shelter Areas
  • Fishing Pier
  • Vehicular / Pedestrian Access Bridge
  • Parking Area
