Pickering Place Park

Pickering Place Park, Issaquah, WA

Creating a public plaza, amphitheater and a connecting bridge.

Pomegranate Center designed Pickering Place Park to provide a focal point and pedestrian access between two previously disconnected commercial areas. The park features a 400-seat amphitheater, a fountain, two plazas, and a 120′ pedestrian bridge over a wetland. Mosaics depicting native wildlife dot the various pedestrian plazas. Monolithic granite stones decorated with modern “petroglyphs“ illustrating the history of the area form a dramatic backdrop to the amphitheater, which is used to stage festivals and community celebrations.
