RiverWalk Crossing in Jenks working on a major comeback

KRMG

The RiverWalk Crossing shopping and entertainment complex in Jenks next to the Arkansas River got off to a promising start, but struggled after a few years.

Now, under new ownership and management, it's trying to make a comeback, and the first part of the plan involves getting people back out to remind them what an attractive and fun venue it can be.

Jessica Dyer coordinates events at Riverwalk, and she says she has a summer full of activities already planned.

"A lot of entertainment, street vendors, face painting, balloons, bands -- Los Cabos has bands every night," she told KRMG.

And those bands will have company.

"Every Saturday starting May 24th, we're having free concerts," she added.

They also plan some pop-up shops beginning in June, with hopes that some of them will be successful enough to take up residence.

Some of the businesses that have survived the lean times still thrive there, including the aforementioned Los Cabos Restaurant, The Melting Pot, Marble Creamery, and The Cigar Box.

There's a fireworks extravaganza planned for July that will last three days, and by the end of the summer it's hoped the RiverWalk will once again have a popular entertainment destination.

Then the next challenge begins — as holding people during the winter months has been one of the issues that led RiverWalk into hard times.

 

From the Tulsa World:
