"Over the years, our experience working with Confluence has been fantastic. Confluence provides a quality service that you can rely on, but the people they employ and whom you work with are fantastic, which really sets them apart from other firms."
Scott Wingerson / City Manager, City of Gladstone
This signature destination park serves as a central gathering place in the City’s emerging downtown area for family-friendly events, festivals and larger community programs throughout the year.
Confluence led planning and design efforts for this new downtown attraction by incorporating an amphitheater, pavilion, parking, pedestrian plaza spaces and lawn space that converts into an ice rink.
This new community amenity was designed to create a vibrant, programmed amenity while stimulating interest in redeveloping surrounding properties in the area, including a multi-story building adjacent to the amphitheater. Our team assisted the City in coordinating these two projects to strengthen the relationship between these two facilities. Amenities include the use of a walk-out basement providing community restrooms, concessions area and storage for a variety of city-owned equipment that supports the multi-use nature of this dynamic park space.
