At the Atlas Mill Waterfront, the dog park has been extremely popular in this heatwave. At this special waterfront dog park, dogs and their owners can swim together safely, and other users can access the water without dogs elsewhere along the river. “This is the best dog park, ever!” was overheard at the park this weekend, and we’d have to agree. Bernardo Wills Architects provided landscape architecture services for this project.
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.
#ThrowbackThursday 30 years ago, Bob Wills and Gary Bernardo founded their firm in an eight-by-ten foot space in the Tomlinson Black Building in Downtown Spokane. Here’s an image from the vault – Gary, Bob, and Bob Wills Sr. building the first conference room table in Bob’s garage. Never despise humble beginnings, it may be just the start of something good. #BWA30Years

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!
