Khunamokwst ParkPortland, Oregon
Khunamokwst Park is a new park in the Cully neighborhood. As one of the most economically and racially diverse neighborhoods in Portland, the project required an approach to public involvement that was broad, innovative and inclusive. GreenWorks provided outreach to neighborhood children and used this project as a platform for teaching them about landscape architecture, public process, and construction. We partnered with community nonprofit organizations Verde and Hacienda’s Expresiones after-school program to engage a group of 5th, 6th and 7th graders in the process. GreenWorks received the Oregon Community Trees Organizational Award for Outreach for this project’s innovative public engagement.
US Fish & Wildlife Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge Pedestrian BridgeRidgefield, WA
The Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge is a part of a USFWS refuge complex of approximately 5300 acres which contain a lush mixture of wetlands, grasslands, riparian corridors, and forests. GreenWorks supported the planning, design and the environmental requirements for the new pedestrian bridge and associated infrastructure. The refuge receives about 120,000 visitors every year, and the footbridge is integral to access to the Native American Plankhouse and other trails on the site. GreenWorks provided circulation design, site planning and access design for the new bridge location and associated trails, trailheads, kisoks, and parking lots to meet ADA requirements.
Oak Harbor Wastewater Treatment PlantOak Harbor, Washigton
GreenWorks is part of a multi-disciplinary team on the renovation of this regional waste water treatment facility in historic downtown Oak Harbor, Washington. Situated in Windjammer Park on the shores of Oak Harbor the facility will take advantage of technological updates to modernize the facility, integrate it with the surrounding environment and reduce its visual and olfactory impacts. Pedestrian and automobile circulation on either side of the facility provides primary access from downtown Oak Harbor to Windjammer Park and the waterfront.
Bend Whitewater ParkBend, Oregon
A team that included GreenWorks designed this project to provide safe passage over the existing dam for many types of river users, including inflatable crafts, and hardshell boats like kayaks and canoes. In addition to the in-water recreational components, the design includes increased habitat diversity along the river by incorporating fish passage and on-bank habitat restoration, design improvements to McKay Park, and removal of the existing pedestrian bridge and replacement with a new, higher, pedestrian bridge.
Clay Street Green StreetPortland, Oregon
GreenWorks has contributed to the redevelopment of Portland’s Central Eastside Industrial District (CEID) over the last decade through improvements to the Clay Street Right of Way / RiverEast pedestrian plaza and most recently with Clay Street Green Street. GreenWorks, as part of a multi-disciplinary team, designed the streetscape for a 12-block section of SE Clay Street to be a new green street. The green street design provides a pedestrian friendly corridor from the Ladd’s Addition neighborhood to the Eastbank Esplanade, strengthening connectivity and improving the pedestrian realm.
