R Park’s main entrance will be marked and welcoming by winter, guiding visitors to convenient parking just north of the Wilson boat ramp access road.
This entrance sign and the Gilday Architects-designed kiosk will begin the creation of an entrance plaza providing visitors with park information, seating, shelter, and more.
Led by Pierson Land Works of the park’s locally based, acclaimed design team, the sign interweaves the area’s natural features, while incorporating its history as a gravel-pit.
R Park will embark upon its second second phase of development with the addition of this sign. The first phase focused on the gravel pit’s reclamation including grading, site development, and water feature construction. This second phase includes the design and construction of a variety of passive recreational amenities, such as an entrance plaza, restrooms, picnic tables and benches, and more.
