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.
#30BestofBWA Today we are featuring one of our 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.
The North Bank Regional Playground project is one of five major park elements identified in the Riverfront Park Master Plan that was funded in 2014 with a $64 million bond to redevelop the park.
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!
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!
To celebrate our 30th Anniversary serving Spokane, we will be featuring 30 of our favorite images from our work throughout the years. Follow #30BestofBWA for more! We are very partial to the images of the North Bank Ice Age Floods Playground – we love seeing children enjoy the space designed especially for them.
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.
