A favorite local restaurant has solidified its plans to expand to the heart of Downtown.

A local company called SweetWater Restoration is busily turning two cargo containers into a restaurant. Come summer, Riverside eatery Black Sheep will open a kiosk in the containers in Hemming Park. 

The move is expected to build on efforts to revitalize the park and make it more of a destination. The Friends of Hemming Park are funding the project, with the help of a grant from Southwest Airlines.

The park kiosk isn’t the end of Black Sheep’s downtown vision. After that opens, the restaurant plans to open a location on Laura Street.
