Dec. 6: Riverfront Park design plans presented

Riverfront-park-200SPOKANE, Wash. – Share your thoughts about design concepts for Spokane’s Riverfront Park presented by Washington State University interior design and landscape architecture students 1:30-4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, at Spokane Public Library.

“By showing multiple design approaches, we are hoping to generate lots of public feedback and excitement about what could happen in the park,” said Leroy Eadie, city parks director.

The three presentations include:

* The potential for a wedding and event venue on Canada Island. Judy Theodorson’s third-year interior design students embraced the idea of “place,” including both the rugged beauty of the island and the importance of human gathering and ritual.

* Eco-regionally inspired plans for the promenade running through the heart of the park prepared by Ole Sleipness’ third-year landscape architecture students.

* Visions for a sculpture garden on east Havermale Island presented by Elizabeth Graff’s second-year landscape architecture students. Their ideas respond to the site’s space, cultural and natural histories and characteristics and community desires.
