Dixon Riverfront & Heritage Crossing Site

The Dixon riverfront is an open air plaza that sits upon the historic site of a 1830s ferry crossing and features a bronze statue of Ronald Reagan. Located between Galena Ave. and Peoria Ave., the riverfront area includes period lighting, trees, benches, outdoor tables with seats, and restrooms. The Pavilion offers a comfortable covered seating area, while the amphitheater seating is excellent for performance or speaking. Other areas of the riverfront include the West and East Promenades, the Fountain Rotunda and the River Canopy.
