This is a beach and is an homage to the French Riviera and also to the urban beaches in Paris. Our Rivi-Erie is nestled next to the Erie Canal at Widewater's Marina, we have 120 tons of sand, beach chairs and umbrellas for summer fun. Stop by to play, build a sand castle, bury your toes in the sand...but don't jump in the canal! This year the City of Lockport will be running the beach. But don't worry, we have a vested interest in its success.

The Grigg Lewis Foundation does so much for Lockport. We are forever grateful for the grant that made this public art project possible.
This is an art installation by Lockport Public Arts Council. We also run the Sweet Chalk Festival. See www.sweetsweetsummer.com for more information. Special thanks to Ann Connelly who came up with the word "Rivi-Erie"!
