This improvement project will replace the current failing amphitheater in Neosho Riverwalk Park with a modern structure meeting community needs for a versatile outdoor performance space. The renovations will enhance the historic landscape, improve the quality of space for performances, provide better ADA compliance, improve acoustics, and add much needed restroom facilities.

The amphitheater design and renderings are courtesy of  Ben Moore Studio.

You can be a part of this amazing project by making a contribution today. 

The Neosho Riverwalk Improvement Fund exists so that interested parties and stakeholders may contribute to this ongoing effort as they are able. No gift is too small. We are taking further steps to complete this project all the time. 

Donations of $200.00 or more will be permanently recognized. Larger donation recognition is also available.
