GuildWorks is proud to have been a part of Spokane Riverfront Park's renovation. This multi-million dollar redevelopment included refurbishing the iconic Riverfront Park Pavilion and creating a new event space. Spokane Parks and Recreation celebrated completion of the project with a public grand opening on September 6th & 7th.
This extensive GuildWorks project began in Winter 2017 and took over 18 months before installation in Summer 2019. Advanced engineering of the existing Expo ‘74 historical cable net structure was required and new tension elements were incorporated to support our elegant design array. 72 custom-designed panels provide shade and beauty to the new outdoor gathering and event space.
Garrett Jones, interim director of Spokane Parks, said in a statement, “The Pavilion is now our community’s central gathering place and our lantern...It’s amazing to see how the transformation honors the past while bringing the city’s icon into the future.” We’re excited to have been a part of this signature project that also demonstrates how older structures can be refurbished to create vibrant public spaces for everyone to enjoy!Photo creds: Spokane Night Scenes and Leon Janssen.
