Hot Springs Riverwalk
Hot Springs, SD | Sports + Recreation
ISG designed a riverfront walkway for the City of Hot Springs to provide residents and visitors better access to the areas rivers and downtown area.
The City of Hot Springs wanted to make its riverfront and downtown area more appealing and engage the community throughout the process.
Seeking to provide unique sight lines to their unique rivers, waterfalls, and downtown, the City of Hot Springs, SD partnered with ISG to design and engineer a 1,200 linear foot cantilever walkway. ISG’s in-house multi-disciplinary project team worked to align the structural, civil, and landscape architecture designs for a comprehensive and implementable vision, providing both programming and schematic design.
Understanding that both community and review agency engagement would be critical to the project’s success, ISG has been working closely with the South Dakota Department of Transportation, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the South Dakota Department of Natural Resources. Additionally, the team led collaborative design charrettes that allowed invested partners a seat at the table in design, building a sense of pride and ownership in the final product.
When the walkway is completed, it will heighten community pride, and boost residents’ and visitors’ access to nature, interactive, art, and educational experiences.
