300/365 – Our New Revetment project is open!

In September 2012 when I started working in the old downtown area, they started a revetment project that tore out all the parking and lots of cement from over the Skagit River. Well, they have finally finished it for the use of the public and Ryan and I took a trip down to check it out yesterday. They have done a very nice job of it and it is very inviting to walk the pathway they have put in as well as the park like settling where the road once was. We found some interesting flourishes that they added that were fun as well. I hope you enjoy seeing these pictures and will consider coming for a walk sometime.

It is amazing how long it took them to do this but it sure came out nice. The frogs are along two ramps on the pathway where it has been make handicap accessible. The areas around the trees sound like water is flowing by and we are not sure if that is a speaker system or if they have drains to flowing water. The wall that runs between the park and the pathway becomes a flood wall that they have panels for that drop in to seal the water away from town. I am very pleased to see the end product after all this waiting and we saw many folks walking along the path too.

    How wonderful to have government willing to invest in your public spaces this way. They look great and hopefully your community will embrace the space and it fills up with people
