The proposed Downtown Riverwalk is envisioned as an oasis in the heart of downtown Sheridan, where residents and visitors can mingle in the shade beside peaceful drops and pools near the confluence of Little Goose and Big Goose Creeks.
The DSA Goose Creeks Committee, in cooperation with the City of Sheridan, has started discussions with the US Army Corps of Engineers to discuss options for modifying the existing concrete chute. The conceptual plan would allow for the abandonment of 1st Street along the northern bank and removal of the concrete chute bed and north wall shown at right. The southern wall of the chute would remain in place, as would the bridges. A low-flow stream channel would meander between the bridges, providing pocket parks inside each bend. Sloping banks would provide public access to the pocket parks during low flow. During higher flows, the stream would utilize the parks as a floodplain, and pedestrians would use the paths at street level.
