Check out how the Hoopfest courts at the North Bank of Riverfront Park look under the lights. The best part of our job is coming back to the project site to see the users enjoying the result — and how we determine our success.
The Ice Age Floods Playground in Riverfront Park is DONE and ready for action! We hope that you and your family can visit the playground this weekend during its opening. The new regional playground will open to the public at 12pm, Friday, May 21. Come join us and play!
The countdown to the Ice Age Floods Playground has begun. Crews are working hard for the upcoming opening in only a few weeks. Here is a video sneak peek, we can’t wait for our families and fellow Spokanites to enjoy this site. What element looks the most fun to you? Share with your climbers, skaters, basketballers, and kids of all ages!
Check out the latest construction updates from the Ice Age Floods Playground at Riverfront Park. Crews are working toward the finish line, with the opening right around the corner. This footage shows the play equipment, splash pad test, and the completed basketball court and wheels park. We can’t wait for Spokane’s residents to enjoy this playground. Bernardo Wills Architects provided playground design, landscape architecture and architecture services for this project.
What a difference a year can make. Last February, LaRiviere crews had just begun clearing the North Bank Playground site. The project, including the playground, skate park, splash pad, basketball court, and park maintenance building, is nearly complete and will be a quiet site until landscaping and finishing touches go in this spring.
Check out the evolution of the Ice Age Floods playground design. From evaluation of the existing conditions, to early concepts, the final design, and the finished product prepared for the public. This will be a Bernardo Wills Architects legacy project, fulfilling our commitment to making our community better through the spaces we design.
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.
