Introduction

We started the Waterbend Park Fountain project with two different visions: the developer, who wanted an elegant fountain that would become a distinctive gathering place within the community and the City of Winnipeg, that wanted low maintenance and energy efficient children’s splash park. Our answer: Why not do both?

Project Summary

We used elegant slate obelisks with perforated metal detailing to encircle the fountain and define its edge. To add further definition, we took concrete and water-resistant recycled wood benches that matched the fountain’s curved edge. We designed the fountain to sit at ground level to make sure children could run safely and play in a fully accessible splash park. In the evening, we used LED lighting oriented at the base and top of the fountain’s obelisks—careful to not contribute to light pollution—adding a starlight sparkle to the entire plaza and serving as a way-finding beacon throughout the community.

Our Role

We provided landscape architecture services for each phase such as creating the schematic design, finalizing the design development, tendering construction documents and performing contract administration.
