This webinar discusses the 2018 ASLA award winning project that will revitalize the second largest waterfall in America, the Willamette Falls. The main goal of the project is to transform the old mill buildings. These paper mills will be repurposed into an overlook facility. When the project is finished, the public will have a chance to enjoy the view of the falls and the beautiful scenery surrounding the Willamette River. The Riverwalk project will reanimate the cultural and historical interpretation of the area, as well as the gathering spaces and the habitat.
It will also reveal the plans for the falls including cultural events, community events, food carts, and much more. All of these entertaining and culturally enriching details will turn the site into a place of inspiration and adoration. In addition, this site is of tremendous importance and value for both natural and tribal history.
