DE PERE, WI -- The much anticipated De Pere Riverwalk officially opens today!
The newly renovated riverwalk features a fishing pier and wildlife viewing areas. There's also Sunset Point that extends more than 300 feet out onto the Fox River.
Sarah Klavas of the Wisconsin Department of Tourism says "it's our great outdoor recreation, and when you can combine it with fishing, and hiking and the opportunity to do bird watching and just having a good time with family and friends, it brings people out."
Voyager park was filled with people taking advantage of the great weather for the ribbon cutting. Live music, entertainment and food was also available to celebrate the opening.
