    192nd Avenue Scenic Overlook

    City of Vancouver, WA
    Scenic Interpretative Overlook Project
    Landscape Architecture
    PSI designed a 2 acre scenic overlook that interprets natural and cultural history of the viewed area. The site design features multiple venues for individual, small group and large group naturalistic, interpretive areas The City requested an innovative approach that would utilize local building materials and provide insight into the local history and geology. Public safety was an overriding concern since the overlook cantilevers over a sheer rock face 80 feet high. The interpretation includes designs prepared by our graphic artist that were transferred into the paved surfaces. The interpretative areas include group interactive opportunities featuring rock, fossils, and plant materials.
