Fifth Street will close to vehicular traffic between Patterson Boulevard and Wayne Avenue on weekends
to create a pedestrian mall in the Oregon District with increased service areas for bars, restaurants, and retailers, and increased space for the public to enjoy.
The Oregon District is a Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area (DORA) - which allows patrons to purchase an alcoholic beverage served in a branded cup and enjoy that beverage outdoors, within the boundaries of the DORA.
You can take your to-go beverage around the designated DORA, relaxing outdoors, or while you’re shopping, look for the DORA stickers on the entrances of participating retailers, and sip while you shop. Be sure to finish your DORA beverage before you enter another bar or restaurant.
Amid the beautifully landscaped gardens, flowering pots, hanging baskets and reflecting pools, this lively park on the banks of the Great Miami River offers a place for those who live, work and play downtown to connect to nature. Grab a Link bike and head over to the park to enjoy this urban retreat 365 days a year. The park hosts a full range of year-round activities from summer concerts to ice skating, recreation programs to large community festivals. RiverScape is a place that not only preserves glimpses of the city’s origins but one that embraces modern innovation and evolves with the needs of the vibrant and connected neighborhoods that surround it.
