Title: Reshaping Chelan’s Waterfront
Project: Chelan, WA
Firm: JA Brennan Associates
Summary: Don Morse Park’s sandy swimming beach eroded due to the placement of a bulkhead. This impacted park popularity and left a dangerous five foot drop from the upland park to the beach. The city hired landscape architects to develop a design that could withstand the windy, high-wave environment. As the beach serves primarily as a swimming beach, new materials needed to meet comfort levels for users and look natural.
