#ThrowbackThursday McEuen Park in Coeur d’Alene, ID

By | Architecture, Landscape Design, News | No Comments

#ThrowbackThursday to one of Bernardo Wills Architect’s favorite landscape architecture achievements – the McEuen Park Redevelopment for the City of Coeur d’Alene. The team’s primary objective included creating a destination park and gathering space for the public while incorporating amenities and features to compliment the venue’s spectacular waterfront setting on Lake Coeur d’Alene. What’s that they say about location, location, location? This park has that and more – Centennial Trail access, an interactive playground and splash pad, public art spaces, a dog park, sports courts, an amphitheater, and more! In 2015, the McEuen Park Redevelopment won a Merit Award from the American Society of Landscape Architects Idaho & Montana Chapter. As our weather continues to improve, put McEuen on your list for evening or weekend strolls, and enjoy!

#ThrowbackThursday Mullan Road Improvements

By | Architecture, Construction, Landscape Design, News | No Comments

As one component of the Four Corners/Bureau of Land Management Corridor Master Plan, the City of Coeur d’Alene decided to redevelop Mullan Road, a high-profile thoroughfare near the downtown core. Completed in 2016, the Mullan Road improvement project sought to increase the safety of the road while making it better serve the community and all forms of traffic.

Located between Independence Point beachfront, Fort Sherman Playground, and Memorial Softball Field, Mullan Road traverses through heavy pedestrian-traffic areas with significant mid-block pedestrian-crossing activity. New improved design accentuated pedestrian crossing locations, traffic-calming features, and the ability to close off the road during seasonally high pedestrian activity.
