City opens Park Boulevard, a new connecting road at Coosa Landing


 Gadsden, AL – The City of Gadsden is pleased to announce the opening of Park Boulevard, a new road connecting the Coosa Landing boat launch facility with The Venue at Coosa Landing.

“Most cities would love to have a river running through downtown, and this road is an important step in continuing to develop the riverfront and make the area more accessible,” said Gadsden Mayor Sherman Guyton.

The $1.3 million project was financed through TIF funds designated for the area. As property values rise, so does revenue from existing ad valorem taxes, and those funds are reinvested into the TIF district for infrastructure improvements and economic development.

Park Boulevard will have a positive impact on the City’s riverfront in a number of ways, such as convenience and safety.

Coosa Landing is home to numerous fishing tournaments throughout the year, ranging from high school tournaments to a recent Bassmaster Elite Series event.

Park Boulevard now allows The Venue at Coosa Landing to more easily be used for overflow parking, along with providing anglers and boaters with a route to the boat docks without passing through a parking lot.

The new road is expected to improve traffic flow and safety as visitors can avoid using Hood Avenue, a major thoroughfare, while moving between the boat docks and Venue areas of Coosa Landing.

The Coosa River is an important focal point for the City, and Park Boulevard is the City’s latest investment in the East Gadsden riverfront.

That area now includes the Coosa Landing boat launch, The Venue at Coosa Landing, the boardwalk and recreation areas of The Riverwalk, and opportunities for economic development, including Buffalo Wild Wings and other potential retail sites.
