About this City Journal

Hi Everyone

This is my first City Journal.  It was my first completed medium tile (not a region) that I created last summer.  No particular story attached other than this was started as a resort type town with a nice waterfront, hotels, a marina, theatres, an outdoor music venue, some industry, farms etc.  A bit of a mix in other words.

I hope you enjoy it!

A Note about third party hosting services:

I hope the IMGUR jpg pictures are all ok and are not too big.  Had a hard time understanding how to do the links as this was the first time doing it.  Unfortunately even with a lower quality (85%) jpg I couldn't keep the file below 4Mb when I tried to paste them directly from my album thus my use of IMGUR.  Wonder how long the "free" part will last with them.

1. I'll start off with the Bandshell.

2. Lever Plaza beside the park and Bandshell.

Here is part 3 of Riverview covering the farms, some small businesses, and some nature for your viewing pleasure.

The Golf Course which once was a farm and  belonged to Farmer Dan, who sold up and ...

moved here with his family and his horses.  Retirement suits him just fine!

Just down the road are his daughter and her husband, who own the stables in town.

Here is the small shopping area plus in the back is the distribution centre for the farmers.  The farmers market is just in front of the strip mall.  You can also see some industry.

Some businesses that service the farmers - Bank, Post Office, Corner Gas, a church
