St. Louis, MO
The City of Fort Wayne, Indiana, has a rich history of Native American and European settlers who strategically designed fortified camps at the confluence of three rivers – evolving into the now-modern city. In recent years civic leaders recognized the value of creating riverfront attractions that strengthen their downtown into a regional destination.
We were selected to re-imagine a new waterfront amenity in Promenade Park along the St. Mary’s River. The goal was to increase recreational use of the river, dining and entertainment venues, programmed events, and ecological restoration. The result is a riverfront that gives the community direct access to the river, opportunities to experience the ebbs, flows and sounds of nature, and an equitable landscape for people of all ages, races, physical abilities, and economic situations.
