    "With 800 feet of river frontage, the 5.6 acre George Overlook parcel, part of the Run of River project, provides outstanding scenic views and provides access to the river for recreational activities such as biking, hiking and picnicking. The River Walk, an all purpose ADA accessible walkway, was completed in 2012 and runs from Mt Pleasant Street (near the walking bridge to town) to Joyce Street where it connects with the canoe portage site, the Philbrick Trails, and the River's Edge Bike Park."
