During the opening weekend of the Ice Age Floods Playground, we hosted a coloring contest. We were SO impressed by the entrants, that we had to give away more than one skateboard! We definitely see potential architects, landscape architects, and interior designers in this bunch. Congratulations!
We were so honored to take AIA Spokane on a tour of the Ice Age Floods Playground last week. For many of us, this was one of our first in-person events with fellow design professionals in Spokane. It was the perfect day for an outdoor event. Huge thanks to AIA Spokane for including this project in their Architecture Month programming!
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.
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.
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!
Hooptown USA and Spokane Arts have partnered to fund a large-scale mural to the new basketball court at the North Bank Playground site. The mural will be completed next spring and will bring the state-of-the-art post-tension basketball court to life. The court was included in the scope of the North Bank Playground, and our landscape architecture department supervised its construction. The basketball court, skate park, playground, and climbing areas will provide a single site to be enjoyed by Spokanites of all ages and abilities.
Check out this construction progress at the North Bank Playground in Riverfront Park! LaRiviere is busy bringing the plans to life, alongside the ID Sculpture crews that are nearing completion on the hand-carved splash pad walls and climbing elements. The playground is scheduled for completion in early spring 2021.
