Rotary Park + 26th Street Bridge Improvements
City of Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation
Sioux Falls, South Dakota
Rotary Park improvements, completed in conjunction with adjacent road projects, relocated the park across the Big Sioux River while expanding and improving amenities and access to the greenway bike trail loop.
With changes to the road alignment and elevations, the existing park on the east bank of the river was no longer be accessible by vehicle so a new park and parking lot were constructed on the west bank. Built in conjunction with the City of Sioux Falls, the project includes a new pedestrian bridge across the Big Sioux River to link the new improvements to the existing bike trail and park. New park improvements include a playground, picnic shelter, restroom building, site furnishings, interpretive signage, water fountain, canoe drop off area, landscape and tree plantings.
Confluence coordinated design efforts with engineering team members to create a coordinated wave design theme that was consistently applied throughout park and road improvement projects. Initial concepts were vetted through the public as well as numerous City arts and planning committees. The matching wave water pattern can be found in the park’s concrete pedestrian bridge pier abutments as well as the concrete vehicular bridge abutments, piers and barriers along the road.
