Leave Your Mark

The Dixon Riverfront is brought to life at Heritage Crossing between the Peoria and Galena Avenue bridges. This area features a life size statue of Ronald Reagan on his horse El Alamein, a fountain and hundreds of paver bricks and benches throughout the Riverfront's main walking paths and common areas. Engraving a paver or sponsoring a bench will provide the opportunity to leave your legacy and will support the Riverfront project for years to come. Heritage Crossing celebrates the names of donors, loved ones, special remembrances and favorite sayings.

Your donation will be used to maintain the Riverfront development and establish the Riverfront and Downtown as a destination for tourism. Additionally, this will then assist in strengthening local businesses, improving recreational opportunities and supporting a beautiful venue for events.

Contact us at 815.288.2308 to learn more about how you can leave your mark on the Riverfront.
