The city of South Bend will officially dedicate River Lights Plaza this week. Mayor Pete Buttigieg says the project is part of South Bend’s 150th anniversary.
Mayor Buttigieg will hold a ribbon-cutting Friday, September 4 at 10:00 a.m. River Lights Plaza is located north of Seitz Park along the east bank of the St. Joseph River.
The plaza features customized and commemorative bricks. Landscape architect Chris Chockley helped design the plaza. The sculpture was designed by Rob Shakespeare.
“The River Lights project demonstrates that South Bend has learned once again to turn and face one of our best assets—the St. Joseph River. River Lights Plaza will be a permanent tribute to the generous community members who made this historic project possible with contributions large and small,” Mayor Buttigieg said.
Residents can purchase customized bricks for $150 through September 30.
