Gateway Park Updates3/23/2013 With the Carnival moving to the west end of Gateway Park this year, the Gateway Vendor Market will be located between the Carnival and the Gateway Stage. This new location will promote great pedestrian flow for the Vendors.
New to Gateway Park will be the Varied Industries area. It will be located on each side of Greeley Street, which is a "pedestrian only" street, linking visitors to the vast amount of free parking off of Lincoln Street.
The Gateway Vendor Market and Gateway Varied Industries are exciting opportunities for area businesses and organizations.
