Learn about BridgePark and check out the nifty model.
Information is from the Facebook event and will be held Wednesday, at Storefront for Community Design (205 E Broad Street):
Imagine a park that spans the white water of the James River. Richmond’s very own BridgePark Foundation is working towards bringing this idea to life — dramatically increasing access to the James while addressing some of our downtown’s most challenging gaps in connectivity between city and river levels.
To launch the BridgePark Pop-Up, Storefront for Community Design invites you to feast your eyes on a beautiful 14-foot model that shows the evolution of the BridgePark concept throughout the month of June. On opening night, hear remarks from:
- Ted Elmore, President, BridgePark Foundation
- Peter Culley, Architect, Founder, Spatial Affairs
- Andrea Almond, Landscape Architect, 3North
- Opening at 6pm.
- Remarks at 7pm.
- Suggested donation (cash or credit)
- Bar (cash or credit)
