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!
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.
#WorksiteWednesday Here is an update from the North Bank Playground in Riverfront Park. If the nice weather holds, landscape installation should begin this week. We can’t wait to see the finished product this spring!
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.
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.
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!
