Sandpoint, ID Parks and Recreation Master Plan – Case Study | Bernardo Wills Architects

By | Architecture, Landscape Design, News | No Comments
The City of Sandpoint, Idaho was recently designated by the U.S. Census as the 7th fastest-growing micropolitan area in the United States. As the City of Sandpoint has grown, so has its need to serve the population through parks and recreation services. Bernardo Wills Architects, Greenplay, and Welch Comer Engineers were selected to perform a 20-year Master Plan that provided an inclusive framework for planning, acquisition, development, and administration of the parks and recreation resources, programs, and City of Sandpoint facilities.
Hear from our team on the challenges and creative solutions presented in the Master Plan, as well as the first project implemented from the plan, the War Memorial Field improvements and re-design.

By | 30BestofBWA, Architecture, Landscape Design, News | No Comments

#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.

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.

One of our landscape architects got to visit the University of Idaho last week and see our 7th Street Improvement project. It is still awaiting final completion but looked great with the plum trees in bloom. The goal of this project was to create a pedestrian mall here on 7th Street, which is the beginning of campus tours, and match the branding and character of the rest of the campus. Go, Vandals!
