Rivertown, bounded by Kenner Ave., Minor and Felix sts. and the Mississippi River, is Kenner's historic preservation district. The 16-block area embraces many restored late 19th- and early 20th-century structures and features shops, Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts, Space Station Kenner and Science Complex and Kenner Planetarium & MegaDome Cinema.
Comedy shows and other small productions take place at the 80-seat Castle Theatre. Special events are held at Rivertown throughout the year, including a farmers market, family-friendly outdoor movie screenings and summer concerts. Benches line a landscaped walkway.
