Riverfront Crossings Park

Iowa City, Iowa

 

This park has transformed the site of the City’s former wastewater treatment facility into an open space and community connector providing a variety of experiences for its many users.  

The project began with our team revising a prior Master Plan for the site to better define the proposed civic and recreational spaces within the park, while celebrating its connection to the City. Confluence led an multi-disciplinary team through multiple phases of design and construction, resulting in a community park that serves as a regional destination.

Serving dual purposes, the design approach provides an active recreation and entertainment venue while also offering ample open space for the Iowa River and Ralston Creek to rise during flood season.
