TOM HANAFAN RIVER’S EDGE PARK

Structural light poles illuminate outdoor green over the great Missouri River.

The challenge of this project was to design the lighting to withstand a massive floodplain — all fixtures had to either be fully submersible IP68-rated or had to have electrical connections above 12 feet — while upholding the concept of creating vistas with light by primarily lighting perimeter areas. To achieve this concept, HLB utilized a series of sculptural poles to create vistas, lower-level poles to designate the perimeter, step lights in a stepped grass seating area, and bollards to illuminate the pathways and minimize obstructions. The lighting is zoned to allow for maximum flexibility of light levels depending on the outside conditions. The project is a phased one, and future lighting plans include the addition of glowing pavilions.
