My South Bend Parks & Trails
Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies

My SB Parks and Trails is a combination of park, trail, and riverfront upgrades that will fundamentally change the landscape of South Bend’s shared green spaces. The projects were identified through various community and city planning initiatives.

With the continuous completion of upgrades, we'll be hosting ribbon cuttings and grand openings, which will be updated and listed below.
