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.
Crews at the North Bank Playground at Riverfront Park are still going strong. The operations and maintenance building is dried in and ready for more snow. The exterior masonry and interior utilities have been completed, and the drywall installation is underway. The very-fun play tower is nearing completion, with the surrounding finished grade nearly finalized, tower slides placed, and the skin/panels are going up. Bravo to the crews busy on-site, no matter what weather gets thrown their way. We can’t wait to play in the spring.
Check out the latest drone shots of the North Bank of Riverfront Park. You can see the playground progress before the final push next spring. The play equipment is installed, and the basketball court is ready for winter. These photos Selkirk Development provide context and you can see the proximity of the playground to the new Sportsplex, former Ram Building, and the connectivity to the rest of Riverfront Park and downtown Spokane.
Winter is barely here, but we are already looking forward to spring!
#WorksiteWednesday We are thankful for clear, blue skies at the Ridgeline High School site in Liberty Lake. It is a very active site, with crews working on all fields – baseball, football, and prepping the tennis courts for paving. This will be a premier sports complex for high schools in the Inland Northwest.
