Another huge highlight of 2020 was the construction of the North Bank Playground in Riverfront Park. This update video from August shows LaRiviere and ID Sculpture crews working to bring the plans to life, including the hand-carved splash pad walls and climbing elements. Crews have wrapped up exterior site work for the year and will continue on the maintenance and operations building through the winter. The playground is scheduled for completion in early spring 2021.
Another highlight of 2020 was the completion of CSO tank 26 and “A Place of Truths Plaza” in downtown Spokane. This was well-utilized by Spokanites this summer, as a place to reflect, gather safely outdoors, and view the Spokane River below. Bernardo Wills Architects landscape architects had been working on this project since 2015, and the complex construction process came to a successful conclusion in late 2019. The City of Spokane opened the plaza this spring for Spokanites’ enjoyment. We look forward to future gatherings there and hope to see food trucks, live music, and community groups gather when it is safe to do so.
