Swords Park & Black Otter Trail*

For 20 years, we have worked to protect the Rimrocks and this ecologically, regionally, and historically significant City of Billings Park that overlooks the city and Yellowstone River Valley. Enhancements recommended in the 1997 Master Plan have been incrementally realized including interpretive sites, trail markers, trail heads, native landscape restoration, and multi-use trails connecting to the larger greenway system originally planned by Fischer & Associates. *AECOM project.

Snoqualmie Falls Upper Park*

Significant improvements to Snoqualmie Falls Upper Park were constructed in 2009-2010. Over 2 million visitors per year enjoy this wonder of nature. New park features were designed to be robust, “National Park-like” in character, and sensitive to the context of the surrounding forests and basalt cliffs. Major features include viewpoints of the 267-foot falls, 1500 linear feet of custom guardrail along the cliff edge, interpretive elements, signs, and green roof kiosk, circulation paths, plazas with stone seat walls, habitat restoration, and wetland creation.
