East Wenatchee, WA
City of East Wenatchee
The City of East Wenatchee turned property downtown into a new public space. SCJ gathered input from community members about what to do with the area through social media surveys, an open house, and City Council presentations.
The team incorporated the results into a conceptual plan for a new park that would be used as both a trailhead and an event venue.
A multiple-disciplined SCJ team of engineers and landscape architects created the final design and construction drawings.
The design includes a paved plaza for community events and parades, a raised platform for a stage, and tiered concrete seating that uses the ground’s slope to create a natural amphitheater feel.
“Our various disciplines came together and developed something great for a downtown that needed a community gathering space. We built a vision based on public requests, designed a site that is both beautiful and functional while working with the City’s budget, and inspected the construction to make sure it will last.”
