A Birds Eye View of Downtown Janesville’s Town Square Progress

Downtown Janesville is under construction. After the dirt has been moved, cement has been poured and the heavy equipment has done it’s work, a beautiful and iconic Town Square will emerge. The years of planning and months of watching construction will unveil a community gathering space that everyone can take pride in. One where you will bring your family, your out of town visitors and your friends. A place that has green space for picnics, outdoor seating, riverside views, festival street entertainment, over the river connection point via a pedestrian bridge and the lights and sounds of an interactive water feature. Revitalization is a journey, and this video is an update as of June 2018 of the Town Square area.
