We celebrated a beautiful day at the grand opening of the new Gerald R. Ford International Airport Viewing Park and Pavilion. With our friends at the airport, the Cascade Community Foundation and Owen-Ames-Kimball we re-opened the viewing park to the public introducing additional parking, the new pavilion for shade, new restroom facilities, new picnic tables and benches and new trash receptacles (which are large enough to slide a pizza box in after lunch!).
We were honored to to provide the design of the pavilion which was inspired by flight with the roof lines reflecting airplane wings and following the lines of flight that planes take as you watch them land and take off. The wood on the interior of the roof is rare as is the location of the park being the closest to any active runway in the United States.
Be sure to bring your family to the park to enjoy this incredible local gem!
