 1992 Concept Plan for the Portneuf Greenway is approved by Pocatello's City Council.

  The Portneuf Greenway Foundation is incorporated as a non-profit foundation to implement the ambitious Concept Plan.

 1993 The 1st Annual RiverFest and Duck Race Raffle. With support from local Rotary Clubs, the Portneuf Greenway Foundation held its first RiverFest and Duck Race raffle to raise the funds needed to complete the proposed Portneuf Greenway Trail system.

 1997 Construction begins on the Downtown Reach. At Trapper's Park, Doug Warnok's water feature and dry stream bed engage park users of all ages.
