Here are some construction photos from the Great Flood-themed North Bank Playground in Riverfront Park. ID Sculpture is on-site hand-carving some of the playground climbing walls. They have built plastic tents over the sculpting areas and have a team of 4-6 people in each tent scoring cutting and sculpting the rock to make it reflect our local geology. The skatepark, with two bowls, is also taking shape. Once they start pouring concrete and forming the bowls, the entire process will take about three weeks.
Construction is officially underway at the North Bank Playground site at Spokane’s Riverfront Park, with LaRiviere leading the way as the general contractor. Demolition of the operations and maintenance building makes room for the new structure, and a blank slate is ready for the playground construction. This has been a huge effort for the BWA Landscape Architecture team, and we can’t wait to see their vision come to life.
