“Damon Farber has been visionary in design and very responsive…they’re great to work with.” – Tom Severns, Mankato Parks Supervisor

Riverfront Park overlooks downtown Mankato from the revamped “Old Town” along the mighty Minnesota River. Sustainable design and a reverence for the unique location inspired custom furnishings from salvaged timber, bioswales and infiltration basins blooming with native plants, permeable pavers and an irrigation system that utilizes reclaimed water from the adjacent waste-water treatment plant. Terraced seating for the Vetter Stone Amphitheater, recently named one of the top outdoor concert venues in the state, is crafted from indigenous Mankato-Kasota limestone.
