Work is about to get underway on Rio’s Phase II of renovations.

The second phase features more enhancements along Rio’s lakefront – a new floating barge stage, generous amphitheater-style seating, a cozy fire pit lounge and an expansive and inclusive playground.

True Food Kitchen, featuring healthy, chef-driven, seasonal food & drinks, will be opening in the old Joe’s Crab Shack location later in 2020.

    But are they doing anything about the horrid parking garage? I never go there because of it.

      How about a doggie park and pet store?

      Cool, more room for us!

    Glad they are going to create amphitheatre style seating. The new stage is great but the new seating with the stacked blocks is horrible. I liked bringing the chairs before but now no room for that.

    PLEASE gate around the new playground! And make it shady!

    There are SO few playgrounds/parks in the area without shade and it’s NEEDED, ESPECIALLY in the gross hot summer months

      I think you mean with shade, correct?
