New parks planned as part of Hamilton River Plan

But the plan proposes more, and improved, parks also be developed. Officials have said it could take years to finance and create the various projects.

Here are envisioned parks and other additions, from north to south:

The proposed Confluence area is just upriver, but on the opposite shore from the proposed Spooky Nook at Champion Mill, a gigantic $160 million indoor sports complex that officials believe can draw 1 million athletes and their families from as far as a 3-hour drive each year. That project is expected to break ground later this year.

On the western shore, near Carriage Hill Lane (several blocks south of New London Road), officials envision “a mixed-use village development,” and a portal to the river.
