Huntington Park Construction

Back in June I posted a picture of the Spokane Library taken from across the Spokane River, and if you look closely you can see some benches and concrete near the river. That was the end of the trail at Huntington Park. In June it was a real good hike down a lot of steps, but the view of the Spokane Falls is worth the trip. Well a couple of weeks ago Avista (our electric and gas utility) started a project to make Huntington Park ADA accessible, and here are some pictures of the construction. The first one is what it is supposed to look like when done. Mr. Huntington was a president of Washington Water Power. Today they call it Avista, but the park was named for him.
 The library is located just below the street near the bottom of the picture.

This and the next photo used to be  the small parking lot next to City hall.

This is the service road for the dam and power plant, it used to have a gate right next to where the construction sign is in the picture. If you did not like steps you could walk down this road to the river.

Some of the construction down by the river.
